Ongoing activities are:

Sweet Springs Nature Preserve:

MCAS owns and maintains a 25-acre wildlife preserve, one of the few public open spaces remaining on the south side of Morro Bay. The preserve includes spring-fed ponds, a stream, marsh, and upland area which is haven to wintering Monarch butterflies. Several species of endangered and threatened plants and animals are protected here.
Monthly volunteer work parties are involved in restoring native plants and maintaining the preserve.

Audubon Overlook:

In addition, we own property on which we have built a view deck overlooking the estuary. This deck is open to the public for observation of birds on Morro Bay.
