Public Voting To Name Heron On Md. License Plates
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Hattie, Seemore or Wade? The Chesapeake Bay Trust says you can help decide what to name the heron on its Treasure the Chesapeake license plates.
The nonprofit organization says it has narrowed the possibilities down to those three finalists — Hattie the Heron, Seemore D. Bay, and Wade. Voting began on Friday and ends this coming Friday. The public can vote online at http://www.bayplate.org.
The heron is also used on the logo of the nonprofit, which says more than 550 suggested names were submitted. The trust awards grants to improve the Chesapeake and its rivers, funded in part through sales of the license plates.
The license plate also features a crab crouching in the lower right hand corner, which the organization says doesn’t have a name yet.
