About Heron Haven
Tucked away off 120th & Old Maple Road, Heron Haven stands still and steady as a sanctuary for Omaha wildlife - "even the two-legged human types."
The non-profit provides a unique experience for all who visit. Home-schoolers and community schools bring children out for education.
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts come out and do projects. College students tend to do water studies. Some folk even choose to marry here.
Dedicated To Restoration & Preservation
Heron Haven educational programs include educational engagements like field trips and organized hikes, Scout projects (Eagle Scouts lay gravel and help with upkeep regularly), and nature photography club, an annual wetland festival, and more.
Our friendly volunteers and board members are dedicated to the restoration & preservation of our wetland sanctuary.

Preservation of the natural bio-diversity of this wetland has led to the formation of the 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization, FRIENDS OF HERON HAVEN, which is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the natural attributes of this wetland as well as the maintenance and development of the man-made facilities and exhibits on the premises.
Our goals are to provide opportunities for indoor and outdoor nature study, as well as the passive enjoyment and appreciation of wetland flora and fauna.
Today, through many private donations, governmental and non-governmental grants, and annual membership dues, HERON HAVEN has become a unique inner city sanctuary complete with its nature center, boardwalk, butterfly garden, birds, and many animals, such as mink, fox, deer, turtles, woodchucks, fish, etc...that roam the grounds.
