On the dock in the harbour, Midland, Ontario
This sculpture celebrates the volunteers and donors who supported the reintroduction of Trumpeter Swans into the nearby Wye Marsh and Georgian Bay.
Another view of the same sculpture
By the mid-1930s there were no Trumpeters in Ontario due to overhunting for their meat and feathers. In fact, there were only 77 pairs in all of Canada. Today Trumpeter swans are a protected species in Ontario - so it's illegal to hunt or harass them.
