Osprey NestWatch is a Volunteer Program in Washington state developed by the Upper Columbia Basin Network Inventory and Monitoring Program in collaboration with Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area. This program seeks to monitor osprey nest use and nesting success, and to inform park staff and the public about the status and trend of the osprey populations at Lake Roosevelt.
We need volunteers who can adopt one or more osprey nests at Lake Roosevelt, monitor nest activity throughout the breeding season, and report their observations online. This program is web-based and free of charge.
Data collected by volunteers will provide important information about the status and trends of osprey nest occupancy and reproductive success, and will help guide park management decisions. Join us and help provide valuable information about the osprey population at Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area!
