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.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
