Coastal Training Experts

The Elkhorn Slough Coastal Training Program works with the Coastal Training Network, a group of experts and educators dedicated to the translation and application of science for coastal resource conservation in California. The Coastal Training Network works to advertise and improve education opportunities and programs for coastal decision makers. Network members pledge to be available to provide the best available science to decision makers. If you would like to join, interact, or know more about the Coastal Training Network, please contact us.
