Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge is home to many interpretive programs. The most popular is “First Fridays at the Refuge”, which is held on the first Friday of each month from April through August. First Fridays are a fun, family-oriented, outdoor-themed event which lasts through the evening hours and includes activities for children and adults. The refuge, in partnership with Ducks Unlimited, also hosts a Greenwing Day in the fall. Each spring, on the first Saturday of March when the refuge again opens the interior to the public, a “Swing the Gates Open” celebration takes place.
