Elkhorn Slough may be threatened by erosion and development, but it won't be a victim of the economic recession.
This week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration granted the Elkhorn Slough Foundation almost $563,000 in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds for the Elkhorn Slough Estuary restoration project. The grant supplements an additional $3.9 million in stimulus funds awarded to the foundation last summer.
The restoration project aims to control erosion on 7 acres of tidal wetlands and protect coastal infrastructure with an in-water sill structure.
