Department of Natural Resources to offer eagle license plate

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources official says she hopes a new set of bald eagle license plates will take flight across the state.

Erin Crain, director for the department's Natural Heritage Bureau, said Wednesday that the agency is accepting bald eagle photo submissions. A winning photo could be featured on the new endangered resources license plate, she said.

Crain said the bald eagle plates will replace currently available badger plates. She said the department will continue to offer wolf license plates along with the new bald eagle license plates. Crain said the bureau chooses animals from a list of endangered and rare species in Wisconsin. She said bald eagles are recovering from their endangered listing.
