Sound environmental stewardship is one of the responsibilities we hold in the highest regard. We are committed to protecting and preserving the fragile environment entrusted to us by our neighbors. We have a mile of beachfront, 4.5 miles of river shoreline, and almost half of our 3,400 acres is classified as wetlands, brackish marshlands, or beaches. Manatees, ospreys, and sea turtles share the base. Clearly, our obligation to safeguard them and conserve the environment is immense. We have very aggressive waste management, pollution prevention, and natural resources conservation programs on base. For more information, Environmental can be reached at 904-270-6730 ext 211.
