The H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest (map) Program is dedicated to long-term study of complex forest and stream ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest, development of innovative and collaborative approaches to management of forests and watersheds, and communication of findings to land managers, researchers, policymakers, teachers, students, and the public.
The 16,000 acre Andrews Forest is home to magnificent old-growth Douglas-fir/western hemlock forests, young Douglas-fir forests, and rushing mountain streams. Established in 1948, the Andrews Forest is administered cooperatively by the US Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, OSU, and the Willamette National Forest.Visitor Information
The Multi-Animal Teaching Facility (map) has been designed to replace seventy year old barns on the OSU Animal Sciences farms. These buildings will support teaching and research in Animal and Rangeland Sciences, General Agriculture and Agricultural Education and the outreach effort of the College of Agricultural Sciences. There will be a multipurpose building containing teaching classrooms and laboratories, a farm shop and an animal research facility at the site. The camera is centered on the site of the old sheep barn and will essentially be the center of the new complex of buildings.Construction Time Lapse

The H.J. Andrews Forest Flood Cam The Andrews Forest is focused on a logjam on a section of Lookout Creek approximately 2 miles upstream from its confluence with Blue River. During periods of heavy rain in the winter, Lookout Creek is transformed from a clear stream to a muddy torrent. This is when logjams are built and destroyed, boulders are tumbled, and the stream bed rearranged. Most of the wood in the current log jam was deposited in a flood in 2011, but the old-growth anchor log was in place many years before that. What will the next flood do? Check out the Andrews Forest website for additional cameras and streaming environmental data.
Matt Artz set up a GIS map with all our webcams and streaming data stations.

The giant Pacific octopus is one of the Hatfield Marine Science Center's (map) most popular animal residents. Many people plan their visits to coincide with octopus feeding times, and they love to watch and learn more about these intelligent, curious animals.
Check out the OctoCam website for more information and additional cameras.
The Marys Peak Observatory was set up to provide a visualization of the beauty of natural fluid flows as part of active research examining these flows in both the ocean and the atmosphere. It is a collaborative project by the Ocean Mixing Group and Atmospheric Sciences Group in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences.
This webcam is mounted on Weniger Hall pointing East down Monroe Avenue. Monroe Avenue is on the North border of campus and is home to many restaurants and businesses that cater to OSU students and staff. The buildings down right side of the street are College of Engineering buildings, and the seven story building on the left is The Gem.
This Osprey nest at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest has been occupied every season for the last six years. The pair typically arrives in April and remains until October. The nest is located on the broken top of an old-growth Douglas fir tree, about 180 ft above Lookout Creek. The Ospreycam is deployed 200 ft up in an adjacent tree, powered by solar panels and linked to Andrews Forest Headquarters by a series of radios. Check out the Andrews Forest website for more information and additional cameras.
The Port Orford Field Station is an OSU research and education facility located just south of Cape Blanco on the windswept southern coast of Oregon. (map) The station serves as a hub supporting student learning, scientific research, community priorities, and economic opportunities, and aims to foster coastal stewardship and sustainability by supporting access to the region’s unique marine and terrestrial ecosystem.
The camera looks out at the Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve, one area of focus at the station. This camera is a collaboration with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Marine Reserves Program, and the Redfish Rocks Community Team.
The mission of the 177-foot oceangoing Research Vessel Oceanus is to support academic research at sea throughout the Pacific Ocean. Oregon State University, an operating member of the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System, operates the vessel for the National Science Foundation. The NSF and the U.S. Navy fund the majority of research performed.
The image and map data are updated when available from the ship's satellite uplink. The date and time on the webcam is UTC/GMT.Panama Canal Time Lapse
California sea lions (Zalophus californianus) frequently make use of this haul out while they are visiting in Yaquina Bay. During the summer months they migrate to the Channel Islands of southern California to breed. Throughout the rest of the year adult and sub-adult males can often be found in the waters around Newport and throughout the Pacific Northwest.
This camera is monitored by the Oregon Marine Mammal Stranding Network to check for injuries due to entanglements in fishery gear and marine debris. Sea lions periodically come ashore with plastic packing bands wrapped around their necks and fishing lures hanging from their mouths. A capture cage is sometimes deployed at this site to treat entangled sea lions.
The floating docks used by the sea lions are now owned and maintained by a local non-profit group, the Newport Sea Lion Docks Foundation.
