Land Trusts Response to Climate Change: Examples from the Elkhorn Slough Estuary

CAKE Case Study

The Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve (ESNERR) is located in California. Scientists are researching whether the marsh sites at the reserve will be able to withstand the effects of sea level rise. With this information, conservation and restoration strategies can be developed to support the most resilient marsh sites.  The Elkhorn Slough Foundation is working with agency partners to address marsh loss in the Slough and to protect the surrounding watershed.
