Each animal has its own unique talents and abilities that help it to survive in the world. We humans can learn a lot from them by observing how they live, adapt and thrive, and then apply the same abilities to our own lives. The most outstanding feature about the heron, to me, is its environmental presence. The heron is at home in three elements: Water, Earth and Air. As a water creature the heron is also a symbol of going with the flow, and working with the elements of Mother nature rather than struggling against her. Native Americans took note of the heron's inquisitiveness, curiosity and determination. Herons represent the ability to move forward with life and change as needed. The long thin legs illustrate that we don't need massive pillars to remain upright. Herons are lessons in patience. They are the ones who observe and wait, moving swiftly when the time is right. The heron is a beautiful creature, exhibiting grace, and noble stature. It's no wonder the Native Indians and ancients honored the heron throughout the centuries. We believe this is a great representation of our company's mission and what we stand for.
It's been proven that a family-owned business will consistently outperform almost every other type of business. Family-owned businesses are more stable and tend to have a high level of trust and commitment - both to employees and customers - because how the company behaves reflects the family's personal integrity.
More important, family businesses are finely woven into the fabric of America. We're driven by consistent values like integrity, belief in investing in our communities and a passion to be respected by our clients as unquestionably the best septic and environmental company in town. Of course, Blue Heron Septic is not just family owned, it's family operated!
