Participation in monitoring an osprey nest is intended to accomplish three things. 1) To get children in the habit of observing the wildlife around them on a regular basis, 2) To create an interest in and to teach 'citizen science' methods of observations and collecting data and 3) To instill in children a sense of the value of volunteerism, particularly as it relates to the environment.
