Swan Haven School Program

2018: New programming for the new curriculum!

School programs have always been a large part of spring activities at Swan Haven. Hundreds of school children make the trip with their classes to participate in hands-on activities and games, in a spectacular outdoor classroom. The Yukon Wildlife Preserve delivers Swan Haven School Programs on behalf of the Government of Yukon.
