Biological Monitoring

Tracking animal populations in the estuary


Elkhorn Slough Reserve coordinates a variety of biological monitoring programs. Some focus on common resident species as indicators of ecosystem health, while others track particularly vulnerable or rare species that require special management.

These biological programs are largely unfunded and rely heavily on volunteers for data collection. If you are interested in regularly participating in any of the programs below, contact Kerstin Wasson.
