American Eagle Day
It is celebrated annually on the 20th of June each year. That day was picked because it is when we commemorate the American Bald Eagle being added to the official Seal of the United States in 1782. With the first American Eagle Day was proclaimed by President Bill Clinton in 1995. This is not an official holiday, like where businesses and government is closed. They are all open on this day!
Many activities go on this day including ….
- Informational sessions to raise awareness about the importance of preserving and protecting bald eagles and other wildlife.
- One place local to me is doing something special, Dollywood done by the American Eagle Foundation.
Sometimes this holiday is known as Bald Eagle Day or National Eagle Day.
The American Bald Eagle was on the endangered species list and has since been removed off the list in 2007. However, it is still a protected species.
