Loon Design Wins For Habitat License Plates
A design of two loons on a lake won the most votes for the potential redesign of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources "critical habitat" license plate according to the results of a non-binding DNR poll, the Star Tribune reports.
The loon design beat out eight other possible design in the voting which began March 10, and ended Sunday, KTTC reports.
Four of the eight designs will be chosen by DNR Commissioner Mark Holsten and Department of Public Safety Commissioner Michael Campion to be sold along side the current deer and loon designs already being sold.
The decision will be announced Friday at the Minneapolis Auto Show, DNR's Lori Naumann said.
The plates are sold to motorist who give at least $30 a year to Reinvest in Minnesota, a program focused upon buying land and research for conservation research.
