MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - State parks across Michigan are holding programs this week to mark the 40th anniversary of the approval of the state's Endangered Species Act.

Events begin Monday and run through Sunday.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says 39 state parks and other sites have programs scheduled for Threatened and Endangered Species Week.

Then-governor William Milliken signed Michigan's Endangered Species Act on July 11th, 1974.

The DNR says the law has helped aid the recovery of the bald eagle, gray wolf and peregrine falcon.
