Lakeland Fact of the Day

Have you seen our NACCAP Photo Scavenger Hunt? A 2000 Point item is getting a picture of a live Lakeland Swan. Swan’s can be found around the various lakes in Lakeland, but especially Lake Morton. In efforts to help the decreasing swan population in 1957, the Queen of England graciously sent two swans and now Lakeland’s swan population is up to around 80!
