March Point Heronry - Baby Herons Rescued

After a large maple tree blew down at the March Point Conservation Area – home to over 500 Great Blue Heron nests – these baby herons were stranded. Thanks to amazing work by volunteer land stewards Jim and LaVerne Scheltens -- and assistance from the Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center – the Trust was able to rescue six heron chicks (and the hundreds of other nesting heron families are doing just fine!) Check out live video of the nesting birds via the Heron Cam on the Trust’s web page.
