Swift Watch

NOTE: Swift Watch 2021 Canceled Due to COVID-19

Chapman Elementary School Grounds Closed to All Visitors

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that the annual public viewing of Vaux’s Swifts at Chapman Elementary School is cancelled again this year due to COVID-19.

There will not be resources in place to deal with parking, crowd management, garbage cleanup and other logistics necessary to make Swift Watch a success, and the crowds that Swift Watch attracts are far too large to allow for safe COVID-19 distancing, especially considering the arrival of the Delta variant.

We thank you for coming together as a community to prioritize the safety of all by skipping the swifts this year.
