The habitat of the Willowy Monardella, an endangered mint species native to this area, is currently being destroyed by civilian encroachment into East Miramar. The air station contains 10 species protected by the Endangered Species Act. There are six plants, two birds and two species of fairy shrimp that are listed as threatened or endangered. For years, off-roading has been a problem aboard the air station. All the areas hosting the endangered species around the station are not marked. However, the large areas with vernal pools have signs reading "No entry."
