Sometimes we just can’t get outside – here are some fun options I have found:
I heard about this link this week. They are a web education group that has live cams of nature in different parts of the world. They are fun to watch.
Find out from Ranger Roy what happens to the bears in the meantime and ask any question you like in the comments, or catch the live Twitter chat using the #bearcam hashtag on Monday, August 6 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST.

The Wildlife Center of Virginia – you tubes of recent releases
This week the Wildlife Center of Virginia will release two Bald Eagles that have been patients with us since May – two of the 24 eagles that we’ve treated thus far in 2012. We’re doing two releases – one on Wednesday, August 1, and the second on Thursday, August 2.
On August 1, we’ll release a Bald Eagle rescued from southwest Washington, D.C. – near Bolling Air Force Base. The young eagle – hatched earlier this year – will be released at Mason Neck State Park, along the Potomac River in Fairfax County [http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/mas.shtml]. Ed Clark will be releasing the bird; we’re gathering at the Park Visitors Center at 11:00 a.m.
On August 2, the Center will release a young Bald Eagle that was rescued from the Hog Island Wildlife Management Area, along the James River in Surry County, Virginia. This eagle will be released at Berkeley Plantation on the James River below Richmond [http://www.berkeleyplantation.com/]. Ed will be releasing this bird as well; Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries [VDGIF] Director Bob Duncan [who transported this eagle to the Center back in May] will also be joining us. This release is set for 10:30 a.m. Release site directions can be found at: http://www.wildlifecenter.org/wp/2011/07/nbg-eagle-release/.
Both of these releases are free and open to the public, and we’d love to have you join us. Please feel free to share this invitation with family, friends, and other wildlife enthusiasts.
We’re taking RSVPs for these events. Please reply to this email and please specify the number of participants, and which release.
