Blaine Wetland Sanctuary Trail Opening

The Blaine Wetland Sanctuary is now open. The Grand Opening was held on Tuesday, August 15, 2017.


A boardwalk through the Blaine Wetland Sanctuary (BWS) was completed in July 2017. It extends from a parking area along Lexington Ave. through both wetland and upland habitats to connect the existing paved trail to East Lake Park.


Future plans for the BWS include additional trails (exact locations are yet to be determined) and a nature center on Lexington Ave. Management of the wetland site will continue into the future to accomplish the plan approved by the regulatory agencies.


During spring and summer, crews will be out applying herbicides to control the invasive species which inhibit the growth of the native vegetation. Prescribed burns and over-seeding

with native herbaceous species will allow the area to thrive and provide important habitat for birds and wildlife.


The Sanctuary is located at 11980 Lexington Avenue and is open from 7am to 10pm. For more information on Blaine’s Wetland Sanctuary, go to BlaineMN.gov/WetlandSanctuary.
