The Fish Slough Ecological Reserve is 188 acres. Fish Slough provides wetland and riparian habitats unique to the area, and also supports various endangered or rare fish, plant, and animal species. In the marsh itself, extensive areas are covered with bulrush, cattails, rushes, and saltgrass. The drier areas of the Reserve are dominated by the shadscale scrub community, including saltbrush and rabbitbrush. Birds include blackbirds, marsh wrens, ducks, and raptors. Rocky cliffs line both sides of the marsh, providing excellent perching and nesting sites. Rodents attract predators such as bobcats and coyotes.
