The Virginia Osprey Festival is one of the largest festivals of its kind celebrating the osprey’s annual return to Colonial Beach, birdwatching and the area's abundant natural resources.
The Virginia Osprey Festival in Colonial Beach is committed to conserving the osprey and other abundant wildlife in Colonial Beach and the larger Potomac River watershed by providing educational events, programs, and community science opportunities that serve the local community, its surrounding areas of Virginia and beyond.
The Virginia Osprey Festival in Colonial Beach would like to express its appreciation to the Potomac River Fisheries Commission and its Executive Director, Martin Gary, for their support and use of its facilities to the festival over the years. Please visit their website and become familiar with this valuable organization located within the Town of Colonial Beach.

He will be located in the Fisheries building and will be available on Town Hill afterwards to answer any questions.
Greg has been working with ospreys for 30 years. We welcome Greg to the festival and look forward to his presentation!
