legend

The Navy's point Loma Complex consists of five major facilities: Naval Command, Control and Ocean Surveillance Center; Naval Submarine Base San Diego; Fleet Combat Training Center; Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, and Magnetic Silencing Facility. The site provides proximity to fleet and shore commands, quick sea access for naval operations and appropriate conditions for testing communications and surveillance systems.

Point Loma Naval Complex occupies 1135 acres of the Point Loma peninsula. Several other federal and local facilities operate nearby. The land supports six natural plant communities. Both ocean and bay shoreline provide habitat for marine species. The area is heavily used as a rest area by migratory song birds. The Navy is preparing a land use plan to insure long-range stewardship of Point Loma natural resources.

Point Loma, via Catalina Boulevard, is open to the public during the day; many of the natural areas can be viewed from the road. Public access to each Naval facility is by special permission only. For information call the Natural Resources Office 619-532-2319.

NAVY NATURAL RESOURCES AND LAND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

bird

The Navy and Marine Corps manage more than four million acres worldwide. Much of this land is located in sensitive wetlands along valuable coastlines, some of the most ecologically significant areas in the world. The location of our real estate holdings makes it imperative that we plan and execute our various military missions in harmony with our environment. It is a Department of the Navy goal to promote an environmental protection ethic within the Navy workforce.

The Department of the Navy supports numerous partnerships with other Federal, State, local and private resource groups to promote such programs as the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation, Wetlands Protection and Enhancement, and Watchable Wildlife.

Jacqueline E. Schafer, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Installations and the Environment, has noted, "It will be difficult for the Navy to succeed in its mission unless it has earned the confidence of its neighbors. To keep this confidence, the Navy must emphasize natural resources stewardship in every aspect of its land use." It does. Come see for yourself and discover our resources.
