Swan Rangers saw lots of birds, other wildlife and beautiful scenery during their outings in the week ending Saturday, April 17, 2021!

While the Swan Ranger Saturday group outings remain suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will get a report out each week with items of interest to folks trying to get outside for some "social distancing" and spirit-calming fresh air.
