Great Blue Heron Nesting Begins

Shollenberger Park Docents Len Nelson and Bob Dyer caught site of a nesting Great Blue Heron in the Shollenberger heron & egret colony this morning. Please take the time to visit Shollenberger Park and see this remarkable bird firsthand. The best location to view the colony is in the Park from the River Pier (bring binoculars). Please be sure not to approach the colony from Haystack Landing, however, as this colony is now protected against disturbance by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Despite Dutra's claim that they will do all they can to “preserve the colony site”, expert testimony has stated that abandonment is extremely likely if an asphalt plant is allowed to be built at Haystack Landing. Please help us protect this colony and all the wildlife in Shollenberger Park.
