GIVING MOTHER NATURE A HELPING HAND AT COOPER MARSH
Visit Charlottenburgh Park and observe nesting Ospreys up close! With generous support from the TD Friends of the Environment, a telescope has been placed on the viewing tower at Charlottenburgh Park that provides an excellent opportunity to view nesting Ospreys on the nest structure that was installed last winter. The RRCA has been monitoring the success of breeding Ospreys as part of the Remedial Action Plan for the area for the past five years. For more information, contact Chris Critoph or Brendan Jacobs at 613 938-3611.

ABOUT THE RRCA
Conservation Authorities play a critical role in protecting the environment. Conservation Authorities were first established in the 1940's to manage devastating flooding, erosion and water supply problems that plagued the province due to a rapid growth.
