Visit Dave on the Trail, Reserve Manager Dave Feliz's new blog. He'll be sharing his great photography and observations from the Reserve.
Our popular sightings blog has just moved to: sightings.elkhornslough.org.
See Elkhorn Slough's wildlife from its calm waters as you ride the tide with ESF staff and expert guide Ron Eby. With foggy mornings and sunny afternoons, June is a wonderful time to kayak the slough.
We can provide the kayak, or bring your own.
The transition zone, or ecotone, between salt marshes and uplands is used heavily by wildlife. To characterize animal use of the marsh-upland ecotone, relative to adjacent habitat types, researchers have been deploying camera “traps”, to capture images of animals triggered by motion sensors.
See more great photos and the details of their findings.
The first amphibian surveys of the new wetlands that were created at the Triple M Ranch have been completed...
and we are very excited to report that we found substantial numbers of Santa Cruz Long-toed salamanders in two of the new ponds on the property.
This brings the number of breeding sites in Monterey County up from a previous total of 5 to 7!
