Conservation & Sustainability
BHNP started as a land conservation project back in 2000.
We have maintained conservation as a pillar of BHNP throughout the years and have expanded our efforts across all the ecosystems of the Preserve.
Beaver Dam Analogs
Beavers are a keystone species. Their dams create habitats for themselves and many other species. Their dams help mitigate flash flooding and erosion which is why we have begun a Beaver Dam Analog project.
Meadows for Monarchs
The natural habitat of butterflies is drastically reducing. To support monarchs, we built a butterfly garden full of native flowers and plants.
We fill an important role in protecting our urban waterways and wetlands. Water conservation, water quality monitoring, and wetland protection come with being stewards of Atlanta's urban waterways.
Our Community Garden is full of fruits, veggies, native pollinator plants, and so much more!
Bit Building Project
Our BIT Building program with SouthFace will improve the efficiency and sustainability of our office building.
Blue Heron does not have the resources to accept or treat injured wildlife. However, we have compiled a list of partners that specialize in wildlife rescue.
