Naval Outlying Landing Field

Imperial Beach, California


NAVAL OUTLYING LANDING FIELD

OLF Imperial Beach operates as an extension of NAS North Island. Located nine miles south of the City of San Diego, it lies between Imperial Beach and the Mexican Border. OLF provides a practice field for helicopter operation and a site for personnel support facilities.

The Tijuana River crosses the Mexican border, meanders north through the valley and flows west into an estuarine tidal salt marsh. Nearly half of OLF, 550 of 1190 total acres, is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve. Five endangered bird species are known to use the estuary: Brown Pelican, Peregrine Falcon, Clapper Rail (Light-footed), Least Tern (California), and Bell's Vireo (Least).

Interpretive material on estuary ecology is available form the Reserve Visitor's Center. Trails through the Reserve lead into the tidal wetlands overlooking the mouth of the Tijuana River. For additional information contact the Natural Resources Office of NAS North Island: (619) 545-4743.

NAVY NATURAL RESOURCES AND LAND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

The Navy and Marine Corps manage more than four million acres worldwide. Mush of this land is located in sensitive welands 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 Partners in Flight, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Wetlands Protection and Enhancement, and Watchable Wildlife.

To succeed in its mission, and to earn public 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.


The U.S. Navy and Partners in Flight are cooperating on an international program to promote conservation of resident and Neotropical migratory birds. For information, visit http://www.dodpif.org, or call Department of Defense Partners in Flight at 540-253-5675.
