community stewardship of the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge through
preservation, restoration, and education.
Our Goals
To provide support and assistance to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the
management of the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge through volunteer
activities and funding as well as political support. Volunteer activities focus on
environmental education and outreach, habitat restoration, cleanups,
biological surveys, and invasive species control. These projects will provide an
opportunity for individuals and businesses to participate in the enhancement
and restoration of the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge.  Simply stated, this
provides a chance for the community to "Think Globally and Act Locally."
