Communities & the Living Ocean

Coastal Communities and the living Ocean.

From Astoria to Gold Beach, coastal communities are connected with the ocean through history and livelihood. We have studied this connection and use the knowledge gained to help make the coast a better place to live. Our Coastal Program is headed up by Jim Carlson. The Coastal Program explores two main issues: marine conservation and the impacts of climate change.
