This report summarizes the history of the slough, ecological attractions, educational value, and problems facing its continued existence. Appended references provide the interested and concerned citizen with sources of more specific information. As a result of the initial survey of estuarine areas of California (California Department of Fish and Game, 1969), the critical status of the coastal marshes became obvious. This report on Elkhorn Slough is part of the high priority inventory and assessment of coastal wetlands by the Department of Fish and Game, and it is intended as a guide for citizens, planners, administrators, and all others interested in the use and development of coastal lands and waters. As such, this report transcends local issues on pollution and development and, in fact, documents the status and future of natural resources that should be a part of the inheritance of following generations. This publication is one of a scheduled series. It follows similar documents on Upper Newport Bay (orange county), Goleta Slough (Santa Barbara County) and the Bolinas Lagoon (Marin county).
