The Elkhorn Slough community is our biggest asset. Our education programs, stewardship projects, research efforts, and community outreach would not be possible without the involvement, interest, and support of our friends, ESF members and volunteers. Membership of nearly 750 provides critical financial support of the Foundation's work to restore the health of Elkhorn Slough and its watershed. Volunteers help the Reserve and work directly with the Elkhorn Slough Foundation land trust, contributing over 10,000 hours/year toward major activities to ensure the health of the slough and its surrounding areas. Regional corporations, service clubs and scout troops provide immeasurable assistance to the ESF land staff, providing staff to help restore degraded lands and serve as ambassadors to the community-at-large.
