Often called modern day dinosaurs, Pacific Great Blue Herons are some of the largest and most distinctive bird species in our area. Through donors, stewardship, monitoring and education, SPES helps support and sustain these incredible birds which have been nesting in Stanley Park for more than 20 years! Learn about this unique urban colony with Urban Wildlife Programs Coordinator Nadia Xenakis who will be discussing highlights from this year’s nesting season including the colony’s success, interesting events and milestones, and more! Volunteer Frank Lin will also be showing beautiful photos taken from the season and answering all of your heron questions.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
