Visit This Unique Wildlife Sanctuary In Nebraska With A Boardwalk Trail Over The Water
There aren’t many urban spaces where you can go to enjoy wildlife in its natural habitat. There’s one wetland sanctuary right in Omaha where you can walk the trails, admire the animals, and feel like you’re a million miles from the city.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Address: 11809 Old Maple Road, Omaha, NE, 68164
Walking the trails is always free, but donations are gratefully accepted. To find out more about classes, clubs, and upcoming events, visit Heron Haven’s website. Happy wildlife watching!
