ISO volunteers to monitor heron rookery
Volunteers interested in monitoring a great blue heron rookery and contributing to scientific research on the species are invited to attend Heron Rookery Monitor Training from 9 am to noon, Thursday, Jan. 16, at the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm in Boerne.
Presented by JW Pieper, the session will explore current research on great blue heron rookeries and explain how this monitoring project adds to the body of scientific knowledge. Participants will sign up for monitoring shifts at the workshop and the group will visit a rookery site on the nearby Cibolo Preserve.
A $7 donation is suggested to help pay for monitoring supplies. Learn more at Cibolo.org/calendar or call 830-249-4616.
The nonprofit Cibolo Nature Center & Farm is located on 160 acres of natural lands at Boerne City Park off Highway 46, just west of the Kendall County Fairgrounds.
