Earth Conservation Corps
Earth Conservation Corps and EarthCam bring you a real-time view of an osprey nest located on the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C. The nest, which looks like a huge pile of sticks, is on a pier under the Frederick Douglass Bridge and is occupied by two chicks and their parents.
The Earth Conservation Corps' Osprey Nest webcam is part of an educational, youth media project funded by the National Geographic Education Foundation. Fifth-grade students from Neval Thomas Elementary in Northeast Washington are following Earth Conservation Corps members on their field studies of raptors on the Anacostia River, and plan to use the webcam as part of an on-going, five-year study of birds of prey on the river.
