The Great Blue Heron is one of the most distinctive North American birds. However, the Pacific Great Blue Herons do not migrate and depend entirely on wetland habitat in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island for their survival. The Pacific Great Blue Heron is a Species at Risk and requires our significant conservation efforts to ensure the long-term viability of its population.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve by using our Chilliwack driving holiday tool.
It is fitting that the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve takes its name from this bird, for on the south-western portion of the Reserve is one of the largest heron nesting colonies in the Lower Mainland. With over 150 nests, the colony is active from March through July of each year.
Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve reviews
If you want to escape someplace that will make you relax then this walk will do it for you!!! i've been here numerous times and each time is unique. Well worth the trip!!! more »
Really enjoyed the hike through the grounds. Did not see herons as it was late in the season. Want to go back in the spring. Saw turtles, humingbirds, variety of ducks. Interpretive center was worth..... more »
It is a great place for taking long or short walks while looking at all kinds of birds, including herons, snow geese, ducks, ravens, bald eagles, etc.
It used to be a nice place to observe birds, but in the last 3 years I saw less and less.
