Stop the destruction of Bald Eagle Habitat on Irondequoit Bay


Even though Bald Eagles are no longer on the national endangered species list, they are rare in the greater Rochester area. They are our national symbol and to see them in their wild habitat is a thrill. Building another crowded and noisy apartment complex doesn't warrant the destruction of the eagle habitat on Irondequoit Bay. Please speak up! Tell Penfield to deny the permit for Empire Blvd. development!  CARE!
