Meet the largest and most beautiful swan in the world on Family Day, Monday, February 18th 2019

On Family Day, Monday, February 18 2019 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. members of the Trumpeter Swan Restoration Group and the Trumpeter Swan Coalition will be on hand to introduce you to these magnificent birds that have fought their way back from extinction with the help of a group of dedicated volunteers.

Hear the Trumpeter Swans’amazing stories and learn more about them from the team of women who band and tag the birds.

The event is free. All ages welcome.

Dogs make the Trumpeters nervous so please leave your pets at home.
