Chilliwack: Imagine seeing 100 heron nesting sites in one place

The Great Blue Heron Nature Preserve features one of B.C.’s largest heron populations

At almost a metre tall, great blue herons are one of the most impressive birds in Canada.

And unlike other areas of the country, British Columbia’s herons stay in the province all winter long.

Heron lovers will want to visit Chilliwack’s Great Blue Heron Nature Preserve. With nearly 100 nests active from March to July, this incredible preserve has a network of five scenic trails complete with waterways, bridges and viewing platform.

The trails are open from 8 a.m. until dusk, and the Rotary Interpretive Centre features free admission when open.
