Swan Lake Sanctuary.

In 1998 the area of land between highway 5A and Princeton-Summerland Rd and north of the Sunflower Downs Raceway became known as The Swan Lake Wildlife Viewing and Restoration project. It is now referred to as Swan Lake Sanctuary. Action was taken to protect the area from development and many years were spent convincing the government of that need. The 57 hectares area consists of a kettle lake surrounded by a riparian zone and grasslands.

A kettle hole is a bowl-shaped hollow left by a melting glacier. When a glacier melts, large pieces of ice become separated from the main body of the glacier. These pieces leave holes where they rested. Most kettle holes are between 30 ft. to 50 ft. deep. If a kettle is fed by underground rivers or streams it becomes a kettle lake. If it receives water from precipitation or ground water table, it is called a kettle pond, or kettle wetland if it is vegetated. Swan Lake is a kettle lake.
