Project Summary:

The original project plans were to collaborate with Bluefield High School to setup a website with a live video feed of an Osprey nest near Carragher’s Pond for educational purposes. Due to the time frame and technical complications the nest camera was not completed.

The project goals revisited:
– With the help from Bluefield student and staff members build a weatherproof box for the camera
– With the help from Bluefield student and staff members setup a website in which viewers can access and view the live video
– Have the camera operational and ready to install before the osprey arrive in April
– With the help of Maritime Electric install the camera box, and power source in April
