DRAW EAGLES:


Want to save a national treasure? Here’s how: The “Eagles Forever!” contest calls upon people of all ages to write a 500-word essay or submit an artwork answering the question, “Why is the Bald Eagle important to America?” Current pressure from powerful special interests and developers urge Congress to weaken the 30-year-old legislation protecting the endangered species. Due to a recent extension, contestants now have until April 30 to submit their entries. More information can be found at eaglesforever.org.
