I would like to invite the Friends of San Diego Wildlife Refuges to the upcoming Marine Science Day at San Diego State University’s (SDSU) Coastal Marine Institute Laboratory. Marine Science Day is a free showcase of SDSU’s marine lab facility and scientific research for the public and SDSU students. Throughout the day there will be interactive family-friendly activities, research talks given by students and faculty, games, a marine life touch tank, SCUBA gear demonstrations, raffles, a food truck, and much more! This event will increase public awareness of the exciting marine research conducted by SDSU faculty and students, and will provide public educational and outreach activities related to marine science and conservation and local marine ecosystems.

The Friends of Seal Beach NWR visited the Friends of San Diego Wildlife Refuges meeting in July to develop a working relationship and share common goals and issues. They are a fellow cooperating agency for the San Diego NWR Complex and we look forward to supporting them in their endeavors.
The Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge is part of the extensive San Diego National Wildlife Refuge Complex and is located within the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station.
The Refuge’s tidal salt marsh, encompassing 965 acres of the Anaheim Bay estuary, serves as a wildlife sanctuary on an increasingly crowded coast as well as providing a critical migration stopover and wintering habitat for thousands of birds that migrate up and down the Pacific flyway each year.
The protected areas of Seal Beach NWR provide habitat for resident wildlife as well as an excellent venue for environmental education. The Refuge provides a home for the endangered Least Tern, the Light-footed Clapper Rail, and the Belding’s Savannah Sparrow.
