HILTON HEAD, SC – May 30, 2023 – Outside Brands, leader in Lowcountry exploration tours, has partnered with the Coastal Discovery Museum to sponsor an osprey nest as part of the OpsreyWatch program, with the first egg due to hatch on May 31. This collaboration is part of the museum’s ongoing mission to pursue, preserve, and promote the care of the Lowcountry – a commitment shared by Outside Brands.   

The OspreyWatch Program was developed to monitor osprey on a large scale to address issues facing aquatic ecosystems such as climate change, depletion of fish stocks, and environmental containments. The Coastal Discovery Museum joined forces with Outside Brands to monitor the osprey nest located on the museum grounds, with a virtual livestream to accompany their efforts. This gives people the unique opportunity to tune in and view nature in action daily, and the chance to watch the pair of osprey, Ricky and Lucy, await the first egg to hatch.  

“We are grateful to Outside Brands for their sponsorship of this important program so that we can utilize the best livestreaming technology,” said Rex Garniewicz, President and CEO of Coastal Discovery Museum. “We encourage the community to tune in and watch as we experience nature in real time, knowing the research from this program will be vital to aquatic ecosystem preservation.”  

“Outside Brands offers a team of passionate leaders and talented outdoorspeople who share a deep connection with our natural environment,” said Mike Overton, founder, and CEO of Outside Brands. “The partnership with Coastal Discovery Museum is just one of the ways Outside Brands is dedicated to connecting people to exceptional places, products, and experiences through sustainable ecotourism.”
