The Dale Hollow Lake Marina Operator’s Association in cooperation with the Friends of Dale Hollow Lake are seeking support to install a Live High Definition Camera on one of Dale Hollow Lake’s American Bald Eagle’s Nest. The Marina Association will match the first $5,000.00 raised to push this effort half way toward the ultimate goal of $20,000.00. The funding will be used to install electric service and fiber optic service to the camera which will be mounted high above Dale Hollow Lake overlooking one of the lake’s active American Bald Eagle’s Nests. The camera will be installed by one of this project’s strongest supporters, Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative and will provide 24/7 Live Video feeds from a nest that has produced over 12 baby eagles in the past six years. A Dale Hollow Lake American Bald Eagle Web-Site will be produced where interested viewers can watch the various stages of the eagle’s life such as nest building, egg laying, egg hatching, and eagle fledging. This project is a cooperative, non-profit educational opportunity for the Upper Cumberland and Dale Hollow Lake Region. The camera will be installed and tested in late summer of 2016.
