Blue Heron Trails Temporary Closure

The Blue Heron Trails on the Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, will be closed from July 1 through October 31, 2024, due to staffing and resource shortages. The refuge is dedicating available resources towards preparing wetlands for returning migratory birds, invasive plant control, and the maintenance of public use features to improve trails and facilities in anticipation of peak wildlife viewing and visitation season in November.

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you again when the weather is cooler and our visiting birds are back.
