In the spring of 2017, Park Day School third graders launched a campaign for the Black-Crowned Night Heron to become the Official Bird of the City of Oakland.  Black-Crowned Night Herons love living in Oakland.  Did you know they have the largest rookery in the entire SF Bay Area, right here in Oakland? These fantastic herons have a unique style and they depend on Lake Merritt --the oldest state funded wildlife refuge in the US.  They also depend on clean water in the Bay and in our urban watershed. The Black-Crowned Night Herons love Oakland just as much as we do and they need our help.

Will you please sign our petition and help us get the Black-Crowned Night Herons the recognition they deserve?
