As you walk through Heron Haven, you’ll find many little ponds filled with life. Each of these little ponds are considered oxbows, meaning they were once a part of the Papillion Creek!
Over time, this meander of the river eventually got separated from the flow of water creating the wetlands of Heron Haven. Wetlands can improve water quality, increase flood storage, and provide abundant wildlife habitat!
