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, Sept. 29.
Volunteers will plant up to 900 California native flowers, shrubs and trees along an upland habitat area near the refuge’s salt marsh. The 8 a.m. – noon, National Public Lands Day project is part of the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy.
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, Sept. 20 and can be made by calling the refuge office at 562-598-1024. Names and additional information for each participant must be provided.
Participants are advised to bring picture ID, hats, sunblock, walking shoes (no sandals), and gloves. All ages are welcome.
