Enter Wisconsin’s Eagle License Plate Giveaway now through Sept. 2 for your chance to be one of 10 Wisconsinites receiving this Endangered Resources specialty license plate free for the first year.
Enter online at the Department of Natural Resources website, dnr.wi.gov, and search keywords “eagle plate” or enter in person at the Natural Resources Park at Wisconsin State Fair, Aug. 4-14, at the Natural Heritage Conservation Program display in the south building.
The eagle license plate features the latest design of the Endangered Resources license plate that since 1995 has raised money to help care for Wisconsin’s native wildlife, plants and state natural areas. Revenues from the $25 annual donation motorists pay for the plate have played an important role in helping restore bald eagles, trumpeter swans and other once endangered species to Wisconsin.
“The eagle plate celebrates a great comeback in Wisconsin,” says Drew Feldkirchner, director of DNR’s Natural Heritage Conservation Program. “We’re excited to be able to give away 10 of these eagle license plates to raise awareness of this new plate and the great cause it supports.”
Normally, getting an Endangered Resources license plate costs $40 initially and thereafter requires a $25 annual donation to the Endangered Resources Fund.
Entries are limited to owners of a registered Wisconsin vehicle that qualifies for a special plate: an automobile, light truck, farm truck or motor home. Winners will be randomly selected Sept. 5.
