The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife weekly Speaker Series presented by LCEC continues on Tuesday, Febuary 18 with “The Story of Ospreys” by Claudia Burns, volunteer for International Osprey Foundation.
Ospreys are large brown and white raptors who breed in Southwest Florida from December through April and can be seen diving for live fish in shallow waters throughout the area. Because they build their nests right out in the open, their behavior is easy to observe, but not always easy to understand. This presentation uses photos, videos and recorded vocalizations to explain osprey behavior.
Speaker Series programs begin at 4:15pm in the CROW Visitor Education Center located at 3883 Sanibel Captiva Road and are approximately one hour in length. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for teens (Age 13-17) and free for children age 12 and under. Space is limited, so advanced registration is highly recommended.
CROW’s 2020 Speaker Series presented by LCEC features weekly talks and runs through April 14. For a full schedule of talks, more information or to register in advance, please visit www.CROWClinic.org/articles/2020-speaker-series-presented-by-lcec.
