Oregon's Coastal Conference

Built on a rich history, State of the Coast continues to grow and change annually. Each year it is held in one of Oregon’s beautiful coastal communities, providing participants the opportunity to learn, share, and keep abreast of what’s going on in Oregon’s marine environment. Our goal is to provide relevant and timely content delivered through a variety of useful and fun learning and networking opportunities.

State of the Coast is the coastal conference where everybody from scientists to industries to average citizens can network with, get updates on, and engage in current and future issues and opportunities facing Oregon’s marine environment.
