Duke Energy is collaborating with the North Carolina Wildlife Federation to save Lake Norman’s largest heron rookery
From a distance, Heron Island looks like any of the 100 islands on Lake Norman, north of Charlotte, N.C. As its nickname suggests, however, this strip of land is home to between 60 and 80 great blue heron nests, the largest collection of herons anywhere on the 32,000-acre lake.
These heron nests were in danger – the island has been eroding due to waves generated by increasing boat traffic and heavy storms.
