Heron Haven Wetland is an urban nature reserve consisting of one of the last riparian oxbows of a Big Papillion Creek that flows approximately Northwest to Northeast through Omaha to the Missouri River. The Creek had been channeled for flood control and a 12-acre wetland/oxbow area was left to itself for many years. In 1992, Ione Werthman,with help from the Audubon Society, managed to gather enough support and money to purchase 12 acres, saving the wetland from encroaching real estate development. It's a peaceful place for both people and the many birds that visit.
