Welcome to the State of the Coast!
State of the Coast is the coastal conference where everybody from scientists to industries to average citizens can learn, network, and engage in the current and future state of Oregon’s marine environment.
This day-long event is built on a rich, 10-year history as the Heceta Head Coastal Conference. Held this year in Florence, Oregon, State of the Coast offers you the opportunity to “catch” award winning, bestselling author Paul Greenberg, listen to informative talks on current marine science and policy issues, participate in hands-on activities, interact with research, industry, and community leaders, enjoy some great Oregon coastal food including seafood cooking demos, and have fun. This is Oregon’s coastal conference for everyone!
