The Blaine Wetland Sanctuary (BWS) is one of the most popular spots in the north metro for walkers, bikers, bird watchers, and nature lovers. Recently there has been a large increase in the number of people going off the posted trails and exploring the wetland on foot or bike. It is important to remember that this site is in active restoration. The BWS is regularly evaluated by environmental agencies to determine the progress that the City is making in the restoration project. These agencies recently commented to the City that they are finding evidence of damage to the wetland caused by off trail use. This activity could hurt the ability for the City to get future trails permitted in the BWS. The Blaine Police Department will be increasing bike patrols in the area and you are encouraged to call 911 to report individuals who are off the trails. Thank you for helping to protect the wetland and this popular community asset.
