“Return of the Swans” at Lambton Heritage Museum

Thursday, March 5, 2020
Grand Bend, ON – The first tundra swans have been spotted on the Thedford Bog behind Lambton Heritage Museum, and numbers are expected to rise!
For many residents of Lambton County, the beginning of spring is associated with the annual stop made by the swans during their 6,000 kilometre migration journey through the area. Depending on the year, there may be as many as 15,000 individual birds resting on the bog behind the Museum. They are attracted to the bog by the melt water of spring and the remnants of the prior year’s corn crop.
Visit returnoftheswans.com to find daily estimates of the number of swans in the area. You can also call Lambton Heritage Museum at 519-243-2600 for migration updates.
Be sure to stop by Lambton Heritage Museum before driving over to Greenway Road to view the Tundra Swans in person. Visitors can explore the tundra swan migration exhibit and participate in activities to learn more about these birds and their behaviors.
