THE FRIENDS GROUP
The Stone Lakes NWR Association, now known as Friends of Stone Lakes NWR has raised over $150,000 for several projects in the past few years.
The Blue Heron Trails is a new wildlife viewing and habitat study area that allows the Refuge to be open, for the first time, seven days a week from dawn to dusk.
The Little Green Heron Playscape will create a no-cost, nurturing, nature-filled outdoor space for children and families.
Strategically located for restoring and managing native Central Valley habitat within the 100-year floodplain along the Delta, Stone Lakes NWR acquired its first land in 1994.
