Osprey up close

 

Osprey Update
Light the cigars! Three of them, in fact. This past week, all three eggs hatched in Annie & Squam's nest near Lobstaland in Gloucester. This is the first time since we installed our original OspreyCam 6 years ago that we've seen multiple eggs hatch in the nest that we're live streaming. Grab a front row seat and watch this little family grow!

Richard Pratt at mail crew party

 

In Memoriam 
 We are saddened by the recent passing of Richard B. Pratt, a loyal Greenbelt supporter and Mail Crew volunteer. Well-versed in many subjects, Richard was a history buff with a particular interest in Thomas Jefferson. Richard enjoyed nature and visiting Greenbelt's Cox Reservation, and we're grateful that he was part of our community.
