Nature in Our Backyards
Q: The Osprey nesting platform in my neighborhood has fallen over. Who can help erect it again?
A: Osprey platforms are erected and maintained by private citizens (or municipalities) under permit from DEEP. The state should have a record of who erected the Seaside Ave. platform, unless someone put it up before the permitting process began. At any rate, an interested private citizen or the Town should be able to place a new one in the same location, but should check with DEEP first. (860)675-8130.
