The heron colony at Commodore Park is bursting with chicks, and a local organization is throwing a birthday party to celebrate. The Heron Habitat Helpers will be throwing a “heron chick birthday party” for the 70 new chicks this Saturday (May 30) from 1 to 3 p.m., and they’re inviting the whole community.
The organization will have telescopes set up and naturalists on hand to answer questions and educate participants. They’ll even have birthday cake to celebrate the chicks. The party will be set up at Commodore Park near the Ballard Locks on the Magnolia side. Click here for more info.
