C-1:30pm Osprey Cruise
July 17, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us aboard RiverQuest as we quietly cruise the lower Connecticut River to learn about and observe a fascinating bird of prey, the Osprey. In mid-July, most of the young Osprey are all grown up, so we will see them hanging around on the edge of their nest getting ready to take their first flight, cute! Some young may have already left the nest, they will be seen in the air honing their flying skills. Naturalists and crew will educate all about the amazing journey the Osprey takes to their southern winter home and lots of other interesting Osprey facts. Although the Osprey is our main focus, other wildlife (possible Bald Eagles, hawks, ducks, etc) and sights (Gillette Castle, East Haddam Swing Bridge and more) we observe on our journey will also be pointed out and discussed. This cruise is about three hours long. $40pp. Due to the length of this cruise, no one under 10 please.
