      Herons at the Nest

      Join us for an easy walk to a magnificent rookery which serves as home to more than 30 pairs of great blue herons near Stony Brook. Herons (and occasionally other birds) raise their young in giant stick nests built high up in standing dead trees in the middle of wetlands. Heron rookeries are places of great activity. We will have ample opportunities to watch these magnificent creatures gently gliding to and from their nests in the process of caring for their young. Wetlands are generally very busy places in the summer, so we will spend time searching for the many other species (such as Wood Ducks and Hooded Mergansers) that call these habitats home. We will carpool from Stony Brook a short distance to the rookery. Registration is required. Call (508) 528-3140 for details. See for more information.

      Cost: Adults $8.00m/ $10.00nm
