In the Athapaskan language, the word Yukon means the great river or big river.
An extraordinary spectacle of Trumpeter Swans in southern Yukon
This April we are also recognizing the 20th anniversary of the Swan Haven Interpretive Centre and have new exhibits inside and outside the centre!
Every spring, migratory birds descend on the Yukon en masse in a beautiful display of nature at its finest. The Celebration of Swans is the territory’s premier bird festival, highly anticipated by locals and visitors alike for the sight of thousands of Trumpeter Swans in their natural habitat. Families, visitors and serious and casual birders flock to Swan Haven in Marsh Lake and other viewing areas in southern Yukon to take in the spectacle and join special events
