  • Not just horsing around

    At a massive 99,600 acres, Vandenberg Air Force Base is home to a wide variety of plants, wildlife and terrain. With the amount of acreage, protecting the wildlife can be a challenging task. Luckily, the 30th Security Forces Squadron conservation team, and more specifically the Military Working Horse law enforcement unit, provide the installation with conservation support.
  • Working together to keep beaches open

    β€œI consider Vandenberg to be more than an Air Force base, it is also an environmental preserve to many endangered species,” said Col. Michael Hough, 30th Space Wing commander. β€œIt is our job to protect those species such as the Snowy Plover, and that is why we enforce partial closure of beaches during their nesting season. It is also our job, however, to listen to and care for the people, both on base and in the local community, and my hope is that the community abides by the enforcement so the beach can remain open throughout the nesting season.”
