whats new at the slough

Giving This Holiday Season

The Elkhorn Slough Foundation depends on the generosity of those who love otters, enjoy the beauty of the slough, and long to protect nature.  Support our efforts through Monterey County Gives and your donation will get matched!  

And, consider giving a green gift this year for the holidays.  Gift memberships, donations in honor of a loved one, and Adopting an Oak are all perfect ways to celebrate the holidays while protecting the rare habitat of the slough.  Contributions to Elkhorn Slough Foundation are tax deductable.

Help Us Restore Sand Hill Farm

Yes, dramatic progress has been made at Sand Hill Farm, but there is still much work to be done.  While the hills look green and the cover crop is holding the sediment, there is still trash and plastic to be removed ... and then there is the restoration planting too. 

Your contribution either directly to ESF or through the matching program of Monterey County Gives! funds the amazing transformation of this key property that rises from the slough.

Sand Hill Farm is our "Big Idea"

Sand Hill Fram

The Elkhorn Slough Foundation is once again participating in Monterey County Gives! Our "Big Idea" is the continued conservation and care of Sand Hill Farm. You've seen the amazing transformation that has already taken place, but we still need your help!

When you donate through McGives! They will match your donation - so your donation will go even further.

Restoring Sand Hill Farm will take years of hard work and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
