    Fleur de Lis

    Stone Lakes NWR has proudly supported 15 Eagle Scout projects from local troops with the help from our Friends Group and community sponsors.   Projects hosted on the refuge have included: native tree plantings, native wetland plantings, trail benches, nest boxes, native plant nursery, nursery tables, visitor parking enhancements, raptor perches, and projects for the new upcoming children's Little Green Heron playscape.

    Hand Tools

    Eagle Scout projects are accepted based upon availability of project needs that benefit the refuge public facilities and wildlife, as well as available funding through sponsorships.  If you are interested in proposing a project on the refuge, please contact the refuge well in advance of turning 18 as many projects are weather dependent and may need to extend beyond one or two seasons.

    Currently, 2013/2014 projects are focused on development of the children's Little Green Heron playscape along Blue Heron Trails. The playscape is a nature discovery area focused on families with children under 7 years old. Potential projects include native plant restoration, building pollinator gardens, constructing pathways, and exploratory objects and structures.
