We have Cygnets!

Chuck and Gracie have had a tremendous year for cygnets! We are proud to announce the arrival of FOUR baby swans, born approximately between July 3rd and 4th of 2017. Congratulations Chuck and Gracie!

June 18th Update: Live Web Cam Taken down until 2018

Due to the precocial nature of Trumpeter Swan cygnets; Chuck, Gracie, and their four young are now fully exploring Lake Aspen and are spending time away from the nest (and unfortunately for us) away from the camera. The live cam will be up again next year for the 2018 laying season.

For now, we highly recommend fans of Chuck and Gracie come down to the Nature Center to see these incredible animals for yourselves. Bring your binoculars and spotting scopes! 


Thank you: 

This camera made possible through a generous grant as provided by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The Sunriver Nature Center would also like to give a HUGE thank you to our friends at the Sunriver Owners Association for all of their support in making this live camera feed happen. Thank you Jason and Jesus!
