Harbor Herons and Colonial Waterbirds Annual Symposium
Beginning in 2004, the National Park Service partnered with the New York City Audubon Society to convene the Harbor Herons and Colonial Waterbirds symposium. Initially focused on herons and colonial nesting waterbirds, the evolution of the event has resulted in an annual meeting and the inclusion of a number of other topics related to wetland and waterbird populations in and around the New York Estuary as well as major areas along the Atlantic Flyway.
