    Ormond Beach and Lagoon, located in Oxnard between Port Hueneme and Point Mugu, is a unique wetlands environment that supports over 200 migratory birds, including the endangered Western Snowy Plover and the California Least Tern.  Ormond Beach and Lagoon is situated next to the Halaco Superfund Site and has been blighted by decades of industrialization and pollution from homeless encampments.

    The Mission of Friends of Ormond Beach:
    Friends of Ormond Beach formed in 2019 and is a grassroots organization of environmentally minded volunteers seeking to protect the Ormond Beach wetlands and the species therein.  We seek to raise awareness to our local and broader community about the threats to this wetlands area and partner with other environmentalist groups such as Surfrider, Paddle Out Plastic, and the Ventura Audubon Society to mitigate those threats.  We also work with both city and county agencies that oversee the waterways that discharge into the Ormond Lagoon.  Finally, we support the three partners of Ormond Beach, the city of Oxnard, the State Coastal Conservancy, and The Nature Conservancy in finding a proper land manager to protect the wetlands environment from further degradation. We welcome new volunteers. 
    You can contact us and sign up to get our monthly newsletter at [email protected].  Follow us on Facebook at friendsoformondbeach and on [email protected]
