Loons will grace license plates

Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesotans will see more loons on the roadways this summer.

The birds will be on the state's new conservation license plates, available beginning in May for a minimum $30 contribution to the Department of Natural Resources.

The current conservation plate, which features two deer on a tan background, will still be available. More than 30,000 of those plates are on Minnesota vehicles, according to the DNR.

Wendy Amundson of Red Wing designed the loon plate and the deer plate.
