Mileta Creek Preserve As this purchase was being completed in 1992, biologists documented 129 heron nests on this site with an average of 2.35 young per successful nest. This preserve was studied and stewarded carefully by Land Trust volunteers, but by 1997 there were no more herons nesting on the site. Attacks by eagles drove the herons away.
This preserve, located not far from the Maury Marine Park, holds channels that flow during winter spawning season into Mileta Creek, where cutthroat trout spawn and grow.
