Sea Haven - Monterey Bay

Fort Ord National Monument

Sea Haven is blessed with the most beautiful, scenic views and access to numerous public trails with significant historical background. The community sits near the Fort Ord National Monument, a 14,651 acre natural preserve managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management as part of the National Landscape Conservation Program.  It is the first nature reserve in the U.S. created for the conservation of the endangered Smith’s Blue Butterfly. In 2012, President Barack Obama signed a proclamation in which he stated “the protection of the Fort Ord area will maintain its historical and cultural significance, attract tourists and recreationalists from near and far, and enhance its unique natural resources, for the enjoyment of all Americans.”
