Resource Library


Over the approximately 30 years that the Los Osos/Morro Bay Chapter of SWAP (now FEMEF) has been in existence we have collected a considerable quantity of information about the flora and fauna, ecology, geology, etc. of the Elfin Forest. In doing so we also collected information about other similar locations on the Central Coast. The Resource Library is our way of sharing this information.

Below is an interactive list of the items we have converted to electronic format plus some links to similar items on other Internet sites:

    Oakleaves Archive - Oakleaves is news letter of SWAP, 90% of which is dedicated to news about the El Moro Elfin Forest Natural Area. The first editions were where published in 1986 (irregularly during most of the fund raising and establishment period, then bi-monthly since mid-1997).
