Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists
LIVE Osprey Nest Cam
LIVE Heron Rookery Cam
EarthCam and the Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists are proud to bring you a live streaming, bird’s eye view, of an osprey nest and heron rookery located on Lake Norman in Mooresville, NC. The osprey nesting platform, located in the shallow water surrounding a small wooded island, is one of over seven-dozen platforms constructed by the organization over the past decade through grants from the Catawba-Wateree Habitat Enhancement Program. The heron rookery platforms are located near Heron Island and are one of many platforms constructed by LNWC and grouped together at several locations around the lake. LNWC is a community based organization established for the purpose of environmental education, appreciation of wildlife and natural history, and conservation of wildlife habitat and natural resources. Offering an opportunity to view an active osprey nest provides a unique educational experience to the public and is a testament to LNWC’s commitment to achieving the organization’s vision - to protect and enhance the natural resources and wildlife habitats of the greater Lake Norman area, for all to enjoy.
“The Vision of the Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists is to protect and enhance the natural resources and wildlife habitats of the greater Lake Norman area, for all to enjoy.”
Projects, Programs, Events and Opportunities
LNWC is partnering with the Town of Cornelius to present this year's Earth Jam on Sat, April 15th, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at Robbins Park. This is a free, fun, eco-friendly event where participants of all ages will enjoy free "green" activities including crafts, nature walks, and live music for your listening pleasure. Concessions and drinks will be available for purchase.
No matter your interest there will be volunteer opportunities to match those interest. Some of those opportunities include: assembling Heron/Osprey nesting platforms, plantings for stabilizing shorelines to prevent island erosion, assemble and deploy fish attractors, build and deploy bird/bat nesting boxes, manufacture and deploy turtle platforms, help develop the nature preserve at Robbins Park, etc.
Programs, presentations, outdoor walking or boat tours are given periodically for the purposes of environmental education, appreciation of wildlife and natural history, and conservation of wildlife habitat and natural resources.
