Trumpeter swans, like this trio gliding along Pine Lake, are a comeback success story at Tamarac. In the late 1880s, trumpeter swans disappeared from Minnesota, and in 1987, Tamarac teamed up with the state in an effort to restore the birds. The first of several young adults were released in Jim’s Marsh. Today there are more than 30 successful nesting pairs at Tamarac.
