A Celebration of Swans

Swans in flight.

A Celebration of Swans 2024 has concluded. Visit the Swan Haven Interpretive Centre in April 2025 to welcome spring and witness the mass migration of thousands of swans, ducks and geese. More than 20 free public events are offered during the month-long festival.

Every year, Wildlife Viewing hosts an art competition to select a design for a collectible poster. Hundreds of these posters are distributed across the Yukon.

The Swan Haven Interpretive Centre is closed for the season. The surrounding property is also closed, including the viewing deck and stairs to the lake.
