June 20: American Eagle Day

Every year on June 20, American Eagle Foundation and thousands of Americans celebrate Bald Eagles. American Eagle Day reminds U.S. residents that Bald Eagles still need help.

Al Cecere, the foundation's founder and president, says:
"The bald eagle has been taken off the ESA's threatened species list, but that doesn't mean it has fully recovered and won't continue an up-hill fight for survival. In an era of government budget cutting, it will cost millions of dollars to monitor and protect eagle nests and adjacent ecosystems on private lands nationally for the remainder of this decade and beyond."

Learn more about Bald Eagles, and listen to its calls. What can you do this weekend to teach others about our national symbol?
