The Elkhorn Slough Coastal Training Program provides individuals and groups science-based information, tools, and techniques to make better decisions regarding resources within coastal watersheds. This is done by offering appropriate training opportunities and serving as a reference source for local science based information pertaining to the four National Priority issues identified by NOAA.

National Priority Issues:

  • Habitat Restoration
  • Maintaining biodiversity
  • Polluted runoff
  • Sustainable human systems

The Elkhorn Slough CTP defines more specifically which local coastal resource issues will be addressed through periodic audience needs assessment. Through collaboration with onsite reserve researchers and coastal decision makers the Elkhorn Slough CTP further identifies local and regional information and technical needs.

The Elkhorn Slough CTP shares current science through formats such as:

  • Workshops
  • Seminars
  • Classes
  • Field trips
