I have a fascination with birds and am always on the lookout for places they are known to congregate. The Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve is just such a place. Although we didn’t time our recent visit during the best viewing season, we still managed to spot a few of these long-legged beauties.
Even if you aren’t interested in birds (which I find hard to imagine!), perhaps you will enjoy taking a stroll along one, or more, of the walking loops located throughout the Reserve.
The Tower Trail boasts … wait for it … a tower! If you aren’t afraid of heights it is worth the short trip up to the top. In addition to being a great vantage point to take in the surrounding landscape, there are several interpretive signs that make for an interesting read.
It pays to take your time as you wander down the cottonwood tree-lined trails – there are many tiny treasures to take in.
