A Home for Ozzie is a fun and educational picture book written for young children, but it also benefits UNF’s campus. Written by UNF’s own Amy Costa, assistant director for Eco Adventure, and Jake Fitzroy, former coordinator of Environmental Education Programs, the book is meant to educate children about the wildlife found in the Sawmill Slough Preserve.

The proceeds of the book now go towards “the UNF Trail Foundation for continuing maintenance and improvements as well as to the John Golden Foundation.”

The book features beloved Ozzie the Osprey looking for a place to live and meeting many new friends along the way. Ozzie visits each one and learns about where they live.

The book costs $19.95 plus tax and can be bought at the front desk of the Student Wellness Center.
