Bald Eagle Presentation Set for June 12th


CLARION: In 1782, an Eagle was chosen by the Founding Fathers for the Great Seal of the United States. Long considered a sign of strength, courage and freedom, the American Bald Eagle became our national bird. In spite of its symbolic importance, its numbers declined until Congress passed the Bald Eagle Protection Act in 1940. Additional measures regarding use of the pesticide DDT followed, leading to a population rebound. Now, we can regularly enjoy the majestic sight of an American Bald Eagle soaring over a lake or field. It never fails to take one’s breath away.

Learn more about these iconic birds of prey when State Game Warden Alex D. DiCicco presents the many fascinating details in the life of a Bald Eagle including its description, habitat, diet, and reproduction. This free program will take place on Wednesday, June 12, 2024 at 6:30 PM ET in the downstairs meeting room at the Clarion Free Library, 644 Main Street, Clarion PA.

Warden DiCicco, originally from Westmoreland County, is a graduate of the 32nd Class at the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Ross Leffler School of Conservation in Harrisburg. After 44 weeks of training, he was assigned to Clarion County upon graduation beginning service in February of 2021.
