Support the Habitat Restoration

Support the Habitat Restoration

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, providing a habitat link with neighboring Cosumnes River Preserve to the south and the Vic Fazio Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area to the west, which have similar goals of protecting and enhancing imperiled Central Valley fish and wildlife habitats.

Currently managing 6,550 acres with a goal of providing high quality habitat for both residential and migratory wildlife, the refuge focuses on habitat restoration management programs on grasslands, riparian forest, woodland savanna, freshwater lakes, freshwater sloughs, perennial wetlands, seasonal wetlands, and vernal pools.

The restoration programs not only provide a vital resource for the wildlife, but also a link to the local community and partnerships.
