On Saturday morning, Oct. 18, 2014, Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, and the Friends of the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge will host a National Public Lands Day event to plant native vegetation.
The Naval Weapons Station Environmental Program has been awarded a gran to restore a 3-acre area with native flowers, shrubs, and grasses in upland habitat adjacent to wetland habitat. This is an area that is being choked out by invasive fennel, thistle, and mustard. This work will create much-needed transitional habitat for native birds, reptiles, mammals, and pollinating insects.
The project starts at 8 a.m. and will be completed by noon. If you or your family, friends, or neighbors are interested, please contact the Refuge office at 562-598-1024 to make reservations.
Remember, these events will be a success thanks to the support of volunteers, so spread the word!
Required volunteer forms can be found online. Reservations are mandatory and must be made no later than Wednesday, Oct. 15.
