Are SQL Server recovery model changes logged anywhere...WMI, error logs...etc?

For instance, if I change from FULL to SIMPLE, is this recorded anywhere?

It is recorded in the SQL Server Error Log.

exec xp_readerrorlog 0, 1, N'setting database option recovery'

The result of that should have Text of:

Setting database option RECOVERY to FULL for database 'YourDatabaseName'.
