Observe the magnificent Great Blue Herons and their chicks at Stow Lake
during the spring nesting season in April and May!
Interns and volunteers, using spotting scopes, will direct attention to the herons and chicks and explain their behavior. The observation site will be open from 10 am to 12:30 pm. Follow signs at Stow Lake Boathouse. This is a free activity!
We also offer a Naturalist-led Walk to observe heron chicks and other nesting birds from various spots around Stow Lake and Strawberry Island. Terrain is mostly flat. 10:15 am to noon. Adults: $10, teens & children free.
