Avocet Corner Bookstore Swan Day Display 2015

Hello all!

We had a great turn out for Swan Day this year. The swans were still here in significant numbers for visitors to catch a glimpse of them. Both Friday and Saturday were busy days for refuge staff and volunteers. Friday there were nearly 100 visitors at the education center and Saturday saw over 350 visitors! WOW! Kids activities included making kites, color pages, pin the bill on the swan and checking out Junior Ranger Backpacks. There were many kites and swan pictures seen in the education center.

Avocet Corner Bookstore had two excellent days selling guides to eager bird watchers. The Friends would like to thank everyone for making this years Swan Day a great success and thank you for your support. Visit us on April 25, 2015 for Call of the Wetlands. We look forward to seeing you there.
