(ATLANTIC) A Soiree with the Swans will be held this Saturday at Schildberg Quarry in Atlantic from 11 am to 3 pm.
Staff will be giving ten-minute presentations regarding the Trumpeter Swans ever half hour. There will also be time to view the swans through spotting scopes and witness random feeding sessions. Hot chocolate, cookies, grilled hot dogs and other snacks will be provided free of charge, with donations being accepted for swan care.
If the weather is bad or the swans are not at the quarry, the program will be held at the Atlantic Public Library from noon to 1 pm with a light lunch available.
The event is sponsored by the Cass County Conservation Board, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Atlantic Public Library.
