Week of Caring: Spruce Up Blue Heron Trails

Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge

Saturday, October 8 9:00A - 12:00P

Do you like getting dirty? Do you have a passion for gardening or native habitat restoration?

We've recently completed a project at the Blue Heron Trails Visitor Center at Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, but that doesn't mean the work is done! You can help us with general site care duties such as basic tree/shrub care, irrigation system maintenance, and weeding. These little guys need your help to thrive!
