ABOUT AMERICAN EAGLE DAY

Each year the American Eagle Foundation works with individuals, state agencies, and organizations to request that all states issue a gubernatorial proclamation that recognizes June 20th as American Eagle Day.

WHY JUNE 20TH?

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.

WHAT IS A GUBERNATORIAL PROCLAMATION?

A Proclamation is a special document written and signed by a Governor that recognizes a commemorative day, week, or month in their state.

In 1995, at the request of the American Eagle Foundation, President Bill Clinton and Tennessee Governor Don Sundquist each proclaimed the first American Eagle Day. Since then, Governors from a combined total of 49 states (and two Mayors) have signed Proclamations or Letters of Recognition giving our National Bird, the Bald Eagle, its own “official day” in their state/city!

Find out if American Eagle Day has already been proclaimed in your state this year.

Visit the proclamation history page to find out. If your state hasn’t issued a proclamation, email americaneagleday@eagles.org for more information.
