Welcome!
We  love the Wildlife Refuges of San Diego County. We are unique in that we are a cooperating association for both the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the California State Parks, giving us a rich and diverse set of opportunities to make a difference in wildlife refuge issues. From managing and administering private donations, grants and other funds, to participating in events such as bird counts, Earth Day and many other hands on activities, our association has something for everyone. We support  initiatives and programs such as Habitat Heroes and other educational activities to bring students to an awareness of the refuges and participate in preservation activities.

Check our news page and calendar for the latest information and  upcoming events, you will find many opportunities to meet new friends and make a difference. Come join us in our cooperative efforts with the National Wildlife Refuge System and California State Parks to make refuges even better places for wildlife and for people.

 

Another chance this Saturday to get trained up to be an official volunteer for USFWS!
Sign up by calling Ranger Debbie (details in event listing here).

These white-tailed kites must know it's National Wildlife Refuge Week!
At Seal Beach NWR, they seem to really like hanging out on this antenna pole to look for mice and insects. Usually fall migrants just passing through, these guys have been sticking around. Refuge Manager Rick says that they haven't seen this many kites hanging out together since 2008.

The refuge really is an oasis for wildlife amidst the chaotic city life in SoCal!
