Growing Our Relationships

It takes a community to protect a place

One Tree, Many Branches

Elkhorn Slough Foundation works with students, families, and volunteers to create welcoming spaces for community relationship building. Each of these programs is like an ecosystem, designed to help participants nurture their connections with the land, themselves, and each other.

Community Partners

Land is the heart of the community—and the heart of the community is our relationships. It’s no exaggeration to say that our partners are the lifeblood of our programs.

We’re grateful for the many volunteers, organizations, and institutions that work with us week in and week out to co-create a thriving community.

Thank you for helping our students, families, and visitors become better stewards of the land.
