Drop by the colony to learn about what Heron Habitat Helpers (HHH) does to support Seattle’s largest colony of nesting great blue herons and how you can get involved.
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 March until August, and takes 2-3 hours, once per week. We will train and work with you as needed. No experience necessary.
CARE ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE? HELP A FOREST GROW
We’re looking for enthusiastic people to adopt a habitat area to do weeding and maintenance on your own schedule, once a week, once a month, or whatever works best for you. There are 5 restoration sites in Magnolia. 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.
