HERON ROOKERY TOURS
Saturdays in March, 10 a.m. Held in conjunction with Richmond Audubon Society, Heron Rookery tours start at 10 a.m. at the entrance to the 14th St Whitewater Boater's Take-Out located at the northeast end of the Mayo Bridge. (You can park at the Floodwall Overlook parking lot at 12th and Byrd or at the entrance to the Boater's Take-Out, on the grass, facing the floodwall. Vehicles may stay until noon.) $5 / person. Note: you must be able to climb down a short ladder, walk on a narrow metal catwalk over water, and shimmy under a railing to reach the viewing site. No pets --- they frighten the birds and can't walk on the metal grid.
