Osprey Hike

June 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Did you know that Ospreys suffered the same fate of Eagles and other birds of prey because of DDT use in the 1960’s and early 1970’s?  Learn about the re-introduction of Ospreys to Stony Creek and other Metroparks beginning in 1999.  From Kensington to Stony Creek Metroparks these birds have made a tremendous comeback as impressive as the Eagles. Learn why they are called fish-hawks, who are well adapted to living with people.  We will take a hike to see if we can view these amazing birds.

Ages 7 and up.

Cost: $5 per person

Location: Stony Creek Metropark, Inwood Trail Parking Lot, Inwood Road
