Swan Lake Iris Gardens

Swan Lake is the only public park in the United States to feature all eight swan species and is also home to one of the nation's most intensive plantins of Japanese iris.

Swan Lake is a unique partnership between professor, student, and local community leaders. That partnership led to the development of two brochures that will assist community members while visiting the local park.
