CHAPTER MEETING MONDAY, MARCH 17, 7:15PM
YELLOWSTONE RIVER OSPREY RESEARCH

RENEE SEACOR, Speaker

For the past two years the Yellowstone Valley Audubon Society has contracted with Rocky Mountain College to provide a student intern to assist in YVAS Osprey Pro-ject activities. In the summer of 2013 Renee Seacor took over the Osprey project from intern Cameron Sapp.


Renee moved to Billings in August 2011 to attend Rocky Mountain College, where she is pursuing a degree in Environ-mental Science. The primary goal of the Osprey Project is to evaluate the health of the Yellowstone River ecosystem by monitoring a sentinel species, the osprey. She carried out the work in collaboration with YVAS nest monitors. During this time she also conducted two independent research projects on the Yellowstone River Osprey population. The first study looked at foraging behavior and reproductive success of osprey along the Yellowstone River..
