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

The event will be held along the shoreline of Lasalle Park, 831 Lasalle Park Road. Booths will be set up near the boat launch. Banders and taggers will be working in the beach area. LaSalle Park is the largest over-wintering site for Trumpeter Swans in Ontario. Between 125 to 200 Trumpeters gather near the harbour from December to March.

The event is free. All ages welcome. Dogs make the Trumpeters nervous so please leave your pets at home.
