All About Our Heron Group Names
Did you know that each of our Herons Day Camp groups is named after a real kind of heron?
Living all over the world, there are large variety of heron species. Our camp groups are named primarily for herons living in North and South America. Learn a little about each kind of heron below!
Lava Herons are a small species of heron from the Galapagos Islands. Adults are a slate-gray to black color, which allows them to blend in with the hardened lava.
Green herons can be found in the North and Central American regions. Green herons are relatively small. They get their name from their green back feathers.
A medium-sized heron, the Agami can be found in Central America and parts of South America. Despite their many colored feathers, they are rarely seen in nature.
The Great Blue Heron can be seen all around the United States and Central America. It is the largest heron species native to North America. They live close to bodies of water.
We will learn more about these herons throughout the summer!
