Stamford, CT - The Stamford Land Conservation Trust is excited to announce the successful installation of an osprey nesting platform at Wallacks Drive on the Wallacks Preserve. The installation event took place on Saturday, April 15th, and the osprey tower is now ready to welcome an osprey family.
The Osprey tower was installed to promote the conservation and protection of the local Osprey population. The tower provides a safe and stable environment for ospreys to nest and raise their young, and the installation was a significant step forward in the conservation efforts of the Stamford Land Conservation Trust.
The Stamford Land Conservation Trust would like to extend its thanks to all the volunteers, donors, and supporters who made this project possible. The trust is committed to preserving the natural beauty of the area and will continue to work towards the conservation of local wildlife.
Additionally, the trust has launched a 24/7 live stream of the osprey nest, which can be accessed through the stamfordland.org website. The live stream will enable people to view the ospreys from the comfort of their own homes and will provide an opportunity for anyone interested in conservation efforts to learn more about these magnificent birds.
“This project started with an idea six months ago. When I saw nearly 20 of my fellow Stamford residents, all volunteers, tugging on ropes to raise the platform, it really illustrated to me the power of cooperation based on an idea. Now that a lot of hard work turned that ideal into reality, for the next 50 years or so, give or take, generations of osprey will call our preserve home,” said John Stone SLCT Treasurer and member of the Board of Directors. "We hope the live stream will help to raise awareness of the importance of conservation and inspire people to get involved in protecting our local wildlife."
