Did you know that every spring, Pacific great blue herons take to over 100 nests to raise their young? And all at the intersection of Stanley Park and Downtown Vancouver? Don’t believe us? See for yourself! Join SPES staff for a special site visit to the Stanley Park heron rookery and learn all about how these beautiful and large birds navigate the canopy, build their nests, and raise their fledglings. You’ll also discover how Stanley Park Ecology Society stewards and supports the heron colony by protecting them from predators and monitoring their success in summer surveys. This is part of our annual series, “The Herons are Here”!
