Elkhorn Slough Celebrates 35th Anniversary

Elkhorn Slough Foundation, a local land trust dedicated to conserving and restoring Elkhorn Slough and its watershed, celebrated its 35th Anniversary.  Anne Secker, an attorney with Noland Hamerly, serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Elkhorn Slough Foundation.

Elkhorn Slough is an ecological treasure at the heart of Monterey Bay.  It provides much-needed habitat for hundreds of species of plants, animals and birds (both resident and migratory).  The Elkhorn Slough and its watershed is one of California’s last great coastal wetlands.  It is a working landscape, where people, farming, industry, and nature thrive together.  The Elkhorn Slough has been identified as a Globally Important Bird Area by the American Birding Conservancy.  It was designated as an ecological reserve by the Fish and Game Commission in 1980.

The Elkhorn Slough Foundation works with the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve, California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to conserve, protect, restore, and share this precious and scarce environment.
