The Estuary Explorers Club is an afterschool program for 2nd – 5th grade students from nearby Elkhorn Elementary. Estuary Explorers allows a group of local students to visit the Reserve once a week for four years. It is through this deep experience that new stewards of the Reserve emerge and grow.

“The Estuary Explorers program allows us to build a relationship with our local kids and their families, while instilling an appreciation for the Elkhorn Slough environment in these young stewards,” says Reserve Manager Dave Feliz. “I look forward to the boundless energy and curiosity that arrives every week with the Elkhorn Elementary School bus.”
