Calusa Donates to Eagle Cam Fund




Carl H. Way, Founder and Chairman of Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation and Marco Island Nature Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary, received a $1,000 donation to the Eagle Cam fund from Calusa Garden Club on Monday, April 10.  The Foundation, the parent organization for the Nature Preserve project, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to establishing and preserving the Nature Preserve, protecting wildlife and educating the public about the importance of both.  


Mr. Way thanked the Garden Club officers and members who attended the donation ceremony at the Nature Preserve. He noted that the Club’s gift will be helpful in attaining the Eagle Cam goal of $45,000.  The Eagle Cam Fund will purchase and install two high-tech, weather proof, climate-resistant cameras with remote control capabilities, a computer system and software for transmission, and high powered broadband broadcasting of activities of the eagle nest on the Preserve.
