SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A nonprofit group is raising money to replace the National Conservation Training Center’s damaged eagle camera.

The Friends of the NCTC is seeking to raise $5,000 to buy and install a new camera and supporting equipment.

Friends of the NCTC Board of Directors member Beth Alegret tells The Journal (https://bit.ly/1FQpuaF ) that the group is halfway to meeting its goal.

The camera gives the public a view of wild bald eagles that nest on the center’s campus in Shepherdstown. It was hit by lightning last summer.

Alegret says the lightning strike and other storm damage affected the camera’s night vision function. She says it can still display daylight footage of the eagles.
