The Cass County Conservation Staff invites you to join them on January 7th at Atlantic’s  Schildberg Quarry, for a “Soiree with the Swans.” The Schildberg Quarry is located on the northwest edge of Atlantic, on the north side of Highway 83. Conservation staffers will be on-hand 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. There will also be time to view the swans through spotting scopes and witness random swan feeding sessions.

Soiree with the Swans long sleeved t-shirts ARE STILL available for purchase! Hot chocolate, cookies, grilled hotdogs, 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 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.
