A new CoastCam station was established at Head of the Meadow Beach, North Truro, MA in the Cape Cod National Seashore in 2019. The camera overlooks the beach from atop a remote sandy bluff about a quarter of a mile from the parking lot, so the installation of the cameras, batteries, and solar panels was challenging. Sleds were used to transport gear across the beach, and ladders were used to ascend the bluff while protecting it from erosion. This camera will record beach and nearshore conditions in a region shared by beachgoers, shorebirds, seals, and sharks.
