The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Kristen Mattson on May 29, 3 p.m., as we learn of the status of osprey in the lowcountry. During the presentation you will learn why ospreys are important sentinels of environmental health and better understand their life history including nesting, migration, and feeding. Summary data from 10 years of local osprey breeding observations will be presented as well.
Mattson is an environmental educator for the LowCountry Institute and Spring Island Trust. She has a background teaching biology in higher education and holds a master’s degree in ecology from the University of Florida.
