The swans are here!

Trumpeter & Tundra Swan Viewing

Each spring we look forward to the return of the Trumpeter and Tundra Swans to Chelatna. Once the river begins to melt, the swans flock to the area to begin mating. We usually hear a lot of honking and splashing down by the river which lets us know they have arrived!

We are lucky enough to see this event each year and it's one of the most spectaular wildlife viewing experiences.
