EDUCATION. CONSERVATION. CELEBRATION.

Welcome to the Maryland
Osprey and Nature Festival

This Festival was created by the citizens of the Mid-Atlantic region to celebrate our charismatic Ospreys, to educate the public, agencies, and owners of structures to foster an attitude of co-existence and conservation awareness throughout the Chesapeake Bay and its estuaries.

Proceeds from the Festival go to non-profit organizations who have a vested interest in protecting and conserving Ospreys, Bald Eagles, other wildlife, and natural areas. The support and collaboration of our local government, state wide conservation and wildlife rehabilitation agencies, local and international businesses, and military community share our goals and mission: Education.Conservation.Celebration of our beautiful surroundings, and nature, and wildlife.
