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.
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.
