American Eagle Day 2021 Countdown
American Eagle Day
June 20th commemorates the anniversary of the bald eagle’s selection as our national symbol on the Great Seal in 1782. Today, it serves as a reminder of the bald eagle’s status as a conservation success story and celebrates the eagle’s triumphant return from near extinction.
Although the bald eagle has made a remarkable comeback, there is still work to be done. Trash and debris continue to pollute ecosystems across the US, especially in parks, roadways, rivers, lakes, and streams. Fishing line, hooks, rodenticides, and household garbage pose a serious threat to our incredible bald eagle and other species.
To celebrate American Eagle Day 2021, we have an exciting line-up of digital and in-person educational programming geared towards inspiring community action in conservation.
All funds raised for American Eagle Foundation will benefit our new state of the art Education Center and Rehabilitation Hospital slated to open in June 2022.
