Every May for the past eight years, school children at Lincoln Elementary School have traded their pencils for birding scopes in their quest to get a close-up view of a large heron and egret heronry located on West Ninth Street in Santa Rosa. As fourth grader Pablo Flores said, "I like seeing the birds because they’re part of nature and nature is beautiful.”
