The Exelon Corporation operates the Conowingo hydro-electric dam on the Susquehanna River and sponsors Bald Eagle Day as a way to tout the environmental benefits of the dam and to raise money for the Tri-State Bird Rescue Group.

Bald Eagle Day is held every year on the second Sunday of November at the Conowingo Dam in Maryland.
