Terry Ingram Nominated for Eagle Rare Life Award

Apple River) The Board of Directors of the Eagle Nature Foundation, ENF, has once again nominated their President and Executive Director, Terry Ingram, for an Eagle Rare Life Award. They feel that his 50+ years of service to protect the bald eagle should be worthy of the Award. If Mr. Ingram should win this award, the Eagle Nature Foundation would receive $50,000 for his story from Eagle Rare Bourbon.

Mr. Ingram had been nominated for this Award in previous years, but did not win because the winner was determined by the number of votes that his or her story received. The rules this year have changed and a committee is selecting the winner, so the ENF board feels that Mr. Ingram’s story may have a better chance for winning.

Any person with a computer can go to to read Mr. Ingram’s story and vote for it. But you can only vote once in every 24 hours. Eagle Rare is still looking to see how many votes each story receives to get a feeling of how well received it is.

Mr. Ingram has been President and Executive Director of the Eagle Nature Foundation since its formation in 1995. For many years before that, he was President of The Eagle Foundation and Eagle Valley Environmentalists, organizations that were formed to conduct research on the bald eagle and increase public awareness of the bald eagle and its threats.

He organized the nation’s first Bald Eagle Days event in 1967, then making it an annual event and expanding it to become International Bald Eagle Days, a conference that was held in many different locations across the nation and Canada. He discovered the nation’s first known nighttime bald eagle roost away from a river and helped preserve over 6,000 acres of bald eagle habitat across the Midwest, including Eagle Valley and Ferry Bluff in Wisconsin.
