State of the Coast is the only coastal conference in Oregon that brings together Oregonians interested in the coast to network, interact, and engage in current and future issues and opportunities facing Oregon’s marine environment. Each year, State of the Coast moves to a different Oregon coastal community where it attracts approximately 200 attendees who receive relevant and timely scientific information delivered through a variety of learning and networking opportunities. At the conference, students present their work to a mixed audience, and they can also attend a professional development opportunity where they make connections with a broad range of experts and present to their peers. The conference is planned by Oregon Sea Grant with the guidance from a Planning Committee of diverse partners. Thank you for your contributions!
