It's a season of cygnets for the Buena Vista County Swan Restoration Project, which is on pace to set a new record for rare trumpeter swan hatchlings. So far, 13 new swans have appeared to three adult mated pairs, and two more pairs are currently nesting. Funds are needed to help with feed, veterinary care and pond sites for the swans. Donations can be sent to P.O. Box 1234, Storm Lake.
