Swan Lake Bird Sanctuary is a 57ha/141ac reserve located just 6km/4mi from downtown Princeton.
Sit quietly in one of two blinds and watch for resident and migratory birds. The wetlands, dry grasslands and tall ponderosa pines surrounding this glacial kettle lake attract a wide variety of species. Interpretive signage along the trails describes the native and invasive vegetation of the area. A map of the sanctuary is contained in the Princeton Visitors Guide available at the Princeton Visitor Centre.
