It was expected a new wetland established in 2016 to help improve Lake Panorama’s water quality also would attract wildlife. That expectation already is reality, with some trumpeter swans spending time there this winter.
Brad Halterman, Lake Panorama Association’s project manager, photographed some trumpeter swans on the ice at the 26-acre wetland on January 9. “The wetland was still frozen over, with no open water. They have been hanging out at the wetland off and on for a few weeks now,” Halterman says.
