The Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, located south of Sacramento,
California, lies within the Sacramento-San Joaquin delta, the destination
of thousands of migrating waterfowl, shorebirds, and other water birds.
The refuge was established in 1994 and is one of the few urban refuges
that have the potential to attract and educate thousands of visitors.
Through a number of innovative partnerships, the refuge is protecting

by urban sprawl and agricultural changes. Stone Lakes Refuge contains
both seasonal and permanent wetlands, riparian forest, and grasslands,
as well as some of the last remaining freshwater lakes in the central
