Expanding Connections

Each year the Elkhorn Slough Reserve hosts nearly 4,000 school students, who come to explore our wetlands and oak woodlands, learn about nature, and discover the tiny life found in a drop of water. At the Elkhorn Slough Reserve, we are committed to preparing tomorrow’s environmental leaders by providing them with opportunities to explore the wonderful connectedness of the world they inhabit.

In addition to field trip explorations for students, teachers are invited to participate in a variety of teacher workshops. Self-guided lessons are also available to enhance Reserve visits and provide alternatives for those who can’t join us in person.
