An Ecological Treasure

In Get to Know Us by Administrator

Elkhorn Slough (produced “slew“) harbors the largest tract of tidal marsh in California outside San Francisco Bay. This ecological treasure at the center of Monterey Bay coastline provides much-needed habitat for hundreds of species of plants, animals and birds. The Elkhorn Slough Foundation and the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve work together with the community, government agencies and other partners to protect this precious and scarce environment.
