. . . not "Forgotten"





The Trumpeter Swan was gone from Ohio for hundreds of years. Gone, but not forgotten. In the 1990's Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and other organizations worked together to re-introduce this species back to Ohio wetlands in a program that continues today.




It is a neat story about how this program was conceived, is funded and managed. You can learn more at this site: http://www.clemetzoo.com/rttw/swan/




When I saw this pair nesting, I remembered the work and care that went into bringing this species back to Ohio wetlands and skies. Thought I'd share it with you.
