Tweedsmuir Provincial Park
Tweedsmuir Provincial Park (South) is one of British Columbia's largest provincial parks and home to numerous lakes. As a result, it is full of waterfowl. Trumpeter swans, the largest indigenous North American bird species, are found on Turner Lake and Lonesome Lake from late-October to mid-April. Catch a glimpse of these swans during an early-spring paddle along the Turner Lake chain.
