During that time, it has been my pleasure to re-design and launch this all new web site for them to assist in promoting the activities of the sanctuary.
Swan Lake was formed 12,000 years ago when the last glacier receded. The underlying bedrock, exaggerated by the scouring action of the glacier, provided the basin which defines the lake boundary.
Today, the lake is shallow, warm and flourishing with life despite the pollution created by urbanization of the surrounding area. The lake is fed by a large watershed to the north and east which includes Blenkinsop Lake.
The SLCHNS provides a diverse and enriching experience with a focus on natural history, education and ecological restoration to inspire personal action in stewardship activities. The Swan Lake Christmas Hill Sanctuary is managed with a strong focus towards fostering an understanding and appreciation of nature through direct experiences that will develop personal responsibility for the care and protection of the natural environment.
