7 a.m. – Lake Eola Swan Round-Up
Eola House, 512 East Washington Street
It is time for a check-up for the more than 50 swans that call Lake Eola home and on Saturday, city employees and trained volunteers will carefully gather the swans to get them ready for their annual exam.
Volunteers will be on foot and in kayaks working to corral the swans to the west end of the park to a temporary clinic where they will be weighed, inoculated and checked by a veterinarian before being released back into the park with a bill of good health.
District 4 Orlando City Commissioner, Patty Sheehan will be available to discuss the importance of the annual round-up event and provide an update on the Swan-A-Thon fundraising efforts as well as the Lake Eola Love Story between the lone female Black Neck Swan Queenie and her new mate.
