Last week our volunteers spotted 195 American White Pelicans and 67 Elegant Terns (down from 300 the week before)!

The past couple weeks we've also been posting photos from the Reserve's research cameras.

Attention All Photographers!

We are now accepting submissions for the Elkhorn Slough Foundation 2016 calendar and encourage everyone to submit their favorite photos of the Elkhorn Slough watershed.

The contest is open to all - amateur, professional, young and old - with an image that captures the beauty and wonders of slough's watershed. Grab your cameras and head out to the beach or the ridge tops, stroll the Elkhorn Slough Reserve's trails or paddle the slough waterway. Snap away at the birds, marine mammals, plants, insects, and of course people...
