BECOME A HERON MONITOR
Each season, our monitoring team observes the colony and notes what the herons are doing in each nest. Are they courting? Incubating eggs? Feeding chicks? By noting the date of these events we can learn how long it takes for an egg to hatch, the duration of nesting season, how many chicks hatch, how many fledged, and yes, how many may have been taken by predators. The more we understand, the more we can help protect the colony. This volunteer opportunity runs February until August, and takes 2-3 hours, once per week. We will train and work with you as needed. No experience necessary.
ADOPT A HABITAT AREA
We’re looking for enthusiastic people to adopt each of our 5 habitat areas to do weeding and maintenance on your own schedule, once a week, once a month, or whatever works best for you. All of our habitat areas are in Magnolia and are within walking distance of each other. We will train, and can coordinate other volunteers to work with you as needed. No experience necessary. You’ll have ongoing support from our native plant and habitat restoration team.
