Community members will have an opportunity to help improve habitat at the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge inside the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station during an event on Saturday, October 12.

Volunteers will plant up to 1,300 California native flowers, shrubs and trees along an upland habitat area near the refuge’s salt marsh.

The 8:00am-noon project is associated with National Public Lands Day, the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance public lands. The event is hosted by the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the volunteer group Friends of the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge.

Reservations are required by Thursday, October 3 and can be made by calling the refuge office at (562) 598-1024. Names and additional information for each participant must be provided.
