Celebration of Bald Eagle Recovery Day Friday at State Fair
Gov. Tim Pawlenty has officially proclaimed Aug. 31 as Bald Eagle recovery day in Minnesota. Because of the successful recovery of the Bald Eagle in the U.S., it has been removed from the endangered species list.
A ceremony to celebrate this success is planned for 10:30 a.m. Friday at the DNR Volunteer Outdoor Stage at the Minnesota State Fair. The governor; Mark Holsten, DNR commissioner; U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and State Sen. Ellen Anderson plan to attend.
