What is this picture, you ask? It's the view from the new streaming Blackwater NWR Osprey Cam! We finally have streaming video and audio! And it's live just in ...time for the return of our ospreys later this month. For those who are wondering, we do plan to migrate the Eagle Cam to streaming video/audio in the fall (maybe at a new nest). Check out the new Osprey Cam page on our site and thanks to our partners, Maryland Raptor Rescue and HDOnTap: http://friendsofblackwater.org/camhtm.html

Here's an update on the Cambridge Creek restoration project happening behind The Packing House near Cedar Street.
We applaud our young student government leaders and educators on finding constructive, peaceful ways of taking part in a very difficult national discussion, and engaging youth to express themselves on topics of national importance. These are future leaders of our community, and it's good to see them learning productive outlets to engage in the public process.
Today students in Dorchester County Public Schools secondary schools participated in peaceful in-school activities to recognize last month’s massacre at Marjory... Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Students at Cambridge-South Dorchester High School listened to speakers from law enforcement agencies and Student Government president Daniel Garcia (hear his inspiring speech in a separate post) as well as had the opportunity to sign the #neveragain banner. North Dorchester High School students focused on kindness and participated in a number of creative activities after hearing an address by Michael Nossick, president of the Student Government Association. Activities in the middle schools were more classroom based, with North Dorchester Middle School students’ homerooms designing sidewalk squares in remembrance of the high school victims, and Maces Lane Middle School paying tribute to the 17 victims during Unified Arts period.
This from the Maryland State Highway Administration: The Cambridge Creek Bridge will likely be open to traffic for your afternoon commute home. Work is expected to be completed within the hour.
We'd like to thank MDOT-SHA for taking care of the Cambridge Creek Drawbridge, but also for handling the repair in a timely and efficient manner. MDOT-SHA fully appreciated the impact this had on everyone's commute, and the City of Cambridge is very appreciative for the completion of this project almost four days ahead of schedule.
