The Heron Meadow

Along the east side of the VCA campus lies the Heron Meadow. This two-acre wetland forms part of the eastern headwaters of Judd Creek, our islands’ largest salmon-bearing creek. In 2019, Vashon Center for the Arts and Vashon Nature Center created a partnership to restore this wetland meadow to become a sanctuary for native wildlife and a demonstration site for how to enhance wildlife habitat. It is also a field-based office for Vashon Nature Center and a community gathering spot where the confluence of science, art, and community can thrive in nature!
