It’s coming, Oregon Sea Grant’s 2018 State of the Coast is scheduled for October 27th at Southwestern Oregon Community College, in Coos Bay. This year’s theme is The Coast Through Your Senses and will include fun and informative presentations, workshops and engagement opportunities with community leaders, scientists, students and pretty much coastal folks of all walks of life! Surfrider staff and volunteers play a key role in the event each year both serving on the advisory committee and often presenting and supporting workshops. This year Surfrider will be presenting in both the Oil and Gas session as well as the Marine Debris and Plastic Pollution session.
The annual student poster & art session is a highlight of the conference. Submission deadlines are soon! Please share with any students who may be interested in exhibiting a research poster or art, it’s a great chance to share their work.
The poster abstract submission deadline is October 5th
The artist submission deadline is October 1
