(ATLANTIC) Cass County Conservation has teamed up with Atlantic’s Orscheln’s store to help feed the Trumpeter Swans. You can buy a bag of Whole Cleaned Corn at the registers and Orschelns staff will put it aside for the Trumpeter Swans from now until January 31st. Four bags will fill the feeder.
Also, join Cass County Conservation Staff at Atlantic’s Schildberg Quarry on Saturday, January 7th 2012. Staff will be giving ten-minute presentations regarding the Trumpeter Swans every half-hour beginning at 11:00 a.m. with the last one being presented at 2:00 p.m. The Schildberg Quarry is located on the northwest edge of Atlantic, on the north side of Highway 83. If the weather is bad or the swans are not at the quarry, the program will be held at the Atlantic Public Library from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. with a light lunch available. This event is being sponsored by the Cass County Conservation Board, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, and the Atlantic Public Library.
