Osprey Chick is returned to its Nest at Monomoy Middle School

We are truly grateful to Chatham Fire Department and Eversource MA for assisting us with getting an Osprey chick back into its nest at Monomoy Middle School. The chick had been displaced from its nest by the tornadoes. The Chatham Fire Dept. quickly arrived on the scene. Because the nest was located near live wires, the Fire Dept. activated Eversource. They immediately came out to assist. We are grateful!

Thank you Eversource MA and the Chatham Fired Dept. for your commitment to the community and to wildlife.
