Each year the Elkhorn Slough Reserve hosts nearly 4,000 school students who come to explore the wetlands and oak woodlands, learn about nature, and discover the tiny life found in a drop of water. The Elkhorn Slough Reserve is a living laboratory waiting to be explored!

The Elkhorn Slough Reserve Education Program is committed to preparing tomorrow’s environmental leaders by providing them with the knowledge and understanding of the wonderful connectedness of the world they inhabit.
