This webinar is free for Adopt-a-Heron-Nest program supporters. If you have donated to this program, please e-mail to claim your free ticket.

The heron chicks of Stanley Park have hatched, learned to fly, and are starting to head out from their nests! In this webinar with Urban Wildlife Programs Coordinator Dannie Piezas, learn about the herons that live in Stanley Park, their habitat needs and what it took for the juvenile birds to leave the nest. You’ll get an update on what the herons are up to right now, including how many nests were active this year and how many juveniles have fledged (left the nest). Ask your questions in real time, just as if we were together in person!


*Tickets must be purchased in advance. Fees for this program are based on a sliding scale – you choose what you pay!  Your contributions help us bring you more online programs like this one!

**Only one ticket required per household.

***If this event fills to capacity, members of Stanley Park Ecology Society will be given first priority to any tickets that open up due to cancellations.


We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. For thousands of years, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
