Join Four Harbors Audubon Society and Avalon Park and Preserve for a summer 
lecture presented by Alan F. Poole, author of two books on Ospreys, the most 
recent: Ospreys: Revival of a Global Raptor, released in March of this year. 

The past 50 years have seen an extraordinary resurgence in Osprey numbers 
globally -- from New England to Scotland and from Finland to New South Wales, 
Australia. This good-news story has been triggered not just by cleaner waters 
and less contaminated fish, but also by greening cultures -- dedicated groups 
of people who have built and protected safe nest sites for Ospreys and who have 
brought the species back to regions where it was missing for decades. Alan 
Poole, who has been studying Ospreys for over 35 years, will lead us through 
this story with dazzling looks at some of the places where Ospreys are found, 
as well as introducing us to some of the colorful characters who have helped 
make this Osprey revival possible. Part travelogue, part biography, part 
scientific detective story: this talk will bring us up-to-date on the current 
state of one of our best-loved birds of prey.
Free and open to all. Reservations required. Email:

Presentation will take place on Saturday, July 13, 2019, at 6:30 p.m., in the 
Avalon Park and Preserve Barn, located on Shep Jones Lane, Stony Brook, NY
