Dogs are not allowed at the Elkhorn Slough Reserve. We also ask that you do not plan on leaving your pet in your vehicle while you are visiting. Our parking area does not have any shade.
Dog friendly areas
There are many areas (like the Reserve) that do not allow dogs due to bird nesting and other wildlife concerns. Salinas River National Wildlife Refuge’s Dog Brochure lists dog friendly areas in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties.
