The papers are all signed and another piece of the conservation puzzle is put into place. The Sand Hill Farm, which rises from Elkhorn Road to the ridgeline is now owned by ESF.
This property drains directly into the slough. During the last rains, brown sediment could be seen entering the slough. Our restoration plan includes converting a few of the flat acres into organic farming and returning the majority of the property – especially the hillside – back to native plants.

Grab your cameras and head to the Elkhorn Slough watershed! We are excited to announce an open call for photos for our 2017 wall calendar. Images must be taken in the Elkhorn Slough watershed and can feature landscapes, wildlife, plants, or people. We encourage everyone — amateur or professional— with a great slough shot to enter. Deadline to enter is September 5, 2016. Submit your images today!
The high definition wildlife camera provides a great view into the life of the iconic Monterey Bay critter. With the highest density of Southern sea otters residing in the Elkhorn Slough the camera provides insight into these marine mammals’ lives. See what our otters are up to right now on our OtterCam or visit our YouTube page for even more otter fun.
