“Nestled in the country”
The diverse habitats of Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge are home to over 200 species of birds and numerous other fish and wildlife species. The refuge is located in the heart of California’s Central Valley along the Pacific Flyway. When combined with neighboring natural areas, it is part of a vast landscape corridor that serves as a sanctuary for many resident and migratory fish, wildlife, and plant species. Hiding amongst the grasses, wetlands, and trees are many species of animals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. Although they can be difficult to spot with their amazing camouflage, with a little patience you just might see a coyote looking right back at you! Morning tends to be the best time to see critters before they head for shade and an afternoon snooze. Stone Lakes NWR is composed of a rich mosaic of habitats that support hundreds of species for both resident and migratory wildlife. The main types of habitat you'll see are grasslands, riparian forest, woodland savanna, freshwater lakes, freshwater sloughs, perennial wetlands, seasonal wetlands, and vernal pools.
