Eight Blackfoot Watershed Schools have been invited to attend the School Swan Release Day at the Blackfoot Waterfowl Production Area on May 3 starting at 9 a.m.
This year’s event is expected to bring more than 100 students. The Conservation Education Program is a cooperative effort between the Blackfoot Challenge, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Wyoming Wetland Society to engage students in ongoing efforts to restore trumpeter swans to the Blackfoot Watershed.
Each school will release its very own trumpeter swan. The birds will be monitored in the wild as well as through the group’s swan website on www.blackfoot
The Blackfoot WPA is located north of Helmville on Highway 200, two miles west of the junction of Highways 141 and 200 and approximately 10 miles east of Ovando.
