BIG NEWS! Our Swingbridge Osprey Family are getting a REAL nesting platform. State Representative Melissa Ziobron has been working with the CT DOT to help with the installation before they return in March. This is a community funded project and not funded with taxpayer dollars. Please support the project, every bit will help! Donate here: http://www.gofundme.com/i5n9ys
