Swan Watch at Tennant Lake
February 9 at 7:00 AM - 10:00 AM
The Friends of Tennant Lake and Hovander Park invite you to Tennant Lake, near Ferndale, at
dawn Feb. 9 to see as many as 300 Trumpeter and Tundra Swans form into small groups, bob
their heads simultaneously, then lift off the water for the day’s forage. On a clear day, swans
will lift off promptly at sunrise, so plan to join us at 7 a.m.
A guest speaker will be on site in the warm Interpretive Center after the swans fly.
Refreshments and hot drinks will be served. As in years past, rehabilitated swans healthy
enough to be returned to the wild might be released after the presentation.
Dress for the weather. Binoculars will be useful. Bring your camera! This event is free, and all
ages are welcome. The Friends are supported by the Whatcom Parks and Recreation
Foundation and operate in partnership with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and
Whatcom County Parks.
