Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Elkhorn Slough!

What volunteers bring to the Reserve and the Foundation could never be bought. Since the Reserve’s early years, volunteers have been instrumental in the success of a wide variety of programs and activities that take place here. From education and stewardship to helping in the Visitor Center or Greenhouse, volunteering at the Elkhorn Slough helps us meet our goal to conserve and restore this unique landscape while conducting research and education to ensure its ongoing protection.
