Entrance sign to refuge and naval weapons base

Seal Beach NWR is located within Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach (NWSSB), situated in the northwestern-most corner of Orange County near the Orange County/Los Angeles County border.  

Because of NWSSB’s military mission of storing and handling ordnance (munitions), the Refuge is closed to the public except during special events and escorted tours held on the last Saturday of each month (excluding December). Please see Visitor Activities for further information.

We're sorry but monthly tours have been postponed - Please check back for when tours will resume.
