Our 4% donations helped fund live cams for nature viewing in Shenandoah National Park.
The big thing Shenandoah National Park Association did was install 2 live cameras for the park. One is on the roof of the Byrd Visitor Center and anyone can look at through the camera and see the meadow throughout the day. You can watch the change of the seasons, watch the deer feeding in the meadow, hawks flying over the meadow, ranger programs happening in the meadow, snow storms, etc.
The 2nd camera was placed on the roof of their new office/warehouse and looks up to the mountain ridge. The camera spans from afar and then zooms into different points. You can see Marys Rock, Stony Man, Skyland, Hawksbill, Big Meadows Lodge, and overlooks. This camera will show all the seasons. You can watch as spring emerges and the mountain glows with lush green colors. In the fall you can watch as the fall colors start on the ridge and over the month of October slowly change down the mountainside to the valley.
You can see both live cams from the park’s website at nps.gov/shen. The valley cam from their building is also posted on their website, snpbooks.org. Learn more about Shenandoah National Park Association here.
