Monday, March 23 -- The "official" opening of the Falcon Watch Centre will be on Thursday, April 30. We expect to have the Centre open and functioning before then, but on that day there will be a press conference and special guests including the Ontario Minister of Natural Resources.
-- JMG CompuSmart of Hamilton has not only provided us with the computer that will allow us to transfer the video signal to the internet, but they have in fact provided the computers for all three Falcon Watch Centres in Hamilton, Etobicoke and Toronto.

Saturday, April 18
-- We have live video! As of this afternoon, a small monitor has been set up in the Falcon Watch Centre to display the signal from the video camera mounted on the roof. Later in the week, we'll have some furniture and a larger monitor and someone available to answer questions. Perhaps also by the end of the week we will have a link established to show the live video on this page.
