The Bald Eagle, symbol of the United States of America and once threatened with extinction, has made a substantial comeback. It is now listed as “threatened” rather than “endangered.”
The St. Croix River, bordering Canada in Washington County, has a thriving colony of Bald Eagles. They fish the river just as humans are doing at the same time from their canoes. This international river features camp sites on both the U.S. and Canadian sides and is an attraction for fishing and family outings.
