DSP Campfire Talks: Bald Eagles of Alabama
Join guest speaker Amanda Glover, from Lake Guntersville State Park for a fun campfire talk about America’s national bird & symbol-the American Bald Eagle. Forty years ago, this large bird of prey was in danger of extinction throughout most of its range. Habitat destruction and degradation, illegal shooting, and the contamination of its food source, largely as a consequence of DDT, decimated the eagle population. Habitat protection afforded by the Endangered Species Act, the federal government’s banning of DDT, and conservation actions taken by the American public have helped bald eagles make a remarkable recovery. Amanda will talk about Bald Eagle habitat, restoration, identification, & more.Seating is limited, so bring your own comfortable camp chair if you wish.
