  • The Grande Prairie region is home to a large number of Trumpeter Swans during the spring and summer. Saskatoon Island Provincial Park – located 25 kilometers west of Grande Prairie on Highway 43 and three kilometers north on Range Road 81 – is in the Grande Prairie Trumpeter Swan Important Bird Area and is a designated Federal Migratory Bird Sanctuary. The Fall Fair highlights Trumpeter Swans and other wildlife.

  • "Triumph of the Trumpeters"'
    In the Winter 1955 edition of The Beaver, a feature article created by husband-and-wife team Richard and Lyn Harrington gave a first-hand look at the lengths to which some people in Canada and the United States were going to keep the trumpeter swan alive.

British Columbia

  • This interesting article, from a few years back, highlights the return of the Trumpeter Swan to British Columbia, and the issues of feeding in newly planted fields.

  • This organization works with farmers and other community members on innovative conservation programs to create win-win situations for people and wildlife

  • Lead poisoning is a serious and usually fatal outcome for swans ingesting lead ammunition pellets or fishing sinkers. Judson Lake straddles British Columbia and Washington state. TTSS has worked for decades with partners such as the Canadian Wildlife Service, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to address lead poisoning issues at Judson Lake.

  • Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society hosted TTSS's 24th Swan Conference in 2016. There are many wintering swans, both Trumpeter and Tundra Swans in the area. The Society does a winter bird count as well.
