Our activities depend on access to healthy wetland, stream, river and lake habitats with sustainable wildlife populations.  We share those places with the Great Blue Heron, and want them to stay natural and accessible.  We are committed to incorporating sound and sustainable practices in our own lives and supporting the organizations that serve these objectives.  We also believe that education and shared participation in activities are key elements of a strong conservation ethic.

Great Blue Heron Outdoors is proud to be a supporter of the Kansas Alliance for Wetlands and Streams (KAWS). We share KAWS's focus on protecting streams and wetlands and we support their efforts to improve access to clean waterways. These waters are where we wade!
