Description Of This Tour

Join the Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists for coffee and muffins at Riverside Community Centre before heading off for a birding trip to Swan Lake. The lake is located in a ‘kettle’ – a deep depression created by glacial action about 12,000 years ago. The lake is surrounded by open rangeland and dotted with huge ponderosa pine. The 57 hectares of undulating grassland are home to an abundance of native flora and bird species such as pied-billed grebes, ruddy ducks, Barrow’s goldeneye, possibly a sora or a painted turtle.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
