A cradle of biodiversity in Monterey Bay

From oak-covered ridges to tidal salt marsh, Elkhorn Slough and its watershed is a remarkable meeting place between land and sea. Rare habitats for endangered wildlife nestle up against farms, towns, ranchlands, and industries. It’s a place to explore, discover, fall in love with, and care for—generation after generation.
