The Friends of the Alameda Wildlife Reserve Committee trains and maintains a corps of volunteers committed to protecting and enhancing wildlife at the Alameda National Wildlife Reserve. The committee is dedicated to building public support for creating the refuge and to ensuring the long-term survival of species that depend upon its habitat, including the endangered California Least Tern. The committee restores habitat for California Least Terns and other shorebirds on more than 500 acres of land at the former Alameda Naval Air Station. The committee organizes monthly work parties to create Least Tern nesting sites and remove invasive weeds. Members work with biologists to monitor wildlife populations at the refuge, sponsor tern research projects, and build community awareness about the site. The land has been transferred to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and designated a permanent national wildlife reserve.

The committee meets the third Monday of each month at 7:00 pm
