  • Donate to Help Feed the Swans

    The funding for purchase and delivery of corn to feed the waterfowl viewed at Swan Park for the past 25 years was paid in its entirety by Sheila Lawrence with the generous help of a few of her close friends and countless Swan Park visitors.  Contrary to what you may believe no financial support is provided by any municipal or state agencies.  Since Sheila’s passing a foundation had been created to continue her legacy and to promote and grow this Monticello winter treasure.  If you would like to help continue the growth of this flock of Trumpeter Swans you may do so my making a donation to the Swan City Heritage Foundation. (A 501(C)(3) Non-profit status has been granted) Send your payments to;

    Swan City Heritage Foundation
