Every Year, Thousands Of Swans Fill Up This Minnesota Park, And It’s Nothing Short Of Spectacular

There are many places to see wildlife in Minnesota. People interested in wolves may visit the International Wolf Center in Ely. In Orr, the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary is the biggest black bear sanctuary in the world. Hawk Ridge in Duluth and the National Eagle Center in Wabasha both offer views of wild birds. And all across the state, you’re likely to spot deer, foxes, loons, moose, and many other animals native to Minnesota. Today, we want to add another amazing place to see wildlife to the list: the Swan Park in Monticello, Minnesota. Here, thousands of swans spend their winter on the Mississippi River. It’s easy and free to visit, and it’s well worth a trip in the winter. Take a look:
