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.

Thank you for visiting Monticello. Monticello is a beautiful town located on the Mississippi River and I-94 corridor. Monticello is growing but still has a small 'hometown' atmosphere. We have a great School District and many scenic parks in the community. Maria State Park is an asset to this area, which is located in West Monticello Township. We also have a state of the art Cancer Center, Hospital and Clinic. We hope that you find the information available through this site useful. Feel free to call the chamber office at 763-295-2700 if you have any questions or would like additional information.
