Great Blue Heron is one of the most distinctive North American birds. However, coastal herons do not migrate and depend entirely on wetland habitat in the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island for their survival. The Coastal Great Blue Heron is considered at risk and requires our significant conservation efforts to ensure the long-term viability of its population.

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.
