Ontario Trumpeter Swans (2022)

In 2020 DGATV’s Board of Directors pledged to support and protect the trumpeter swans that live by the trail during the summer.
To that end, Dave E. built a floating platform for Chatsworth Marsh, which he and volunteers installed on July 29th.
Hopefully the swans will take to preening themselves in the sun on the platform and not on the trail.
