The Blue Heron Nature Preserve is a local non-profit in north Atlanta with a mission to environmental stewardship. We provide hands on education opportunities for all ages with a focus on small groups and direct contact experiences with nature. We support state, regional and national conservation initiatives for native plants and wildlife for the Georgia Piedmont, the monarch butterfly and other pollinator species and pioneer new strategies for working with the North American Beaver. Our Blueway Trail Initiative will provide a source of recreation for alternative travel and exercise and invite the public into quiet spaces for solitude and relaxation in nature. The plan for future trails is to connect Blue Heron to the bigger world and offer diverse opportunities to visitors.
