CoastWatch

CoastWatch, a citizen monitoring program, engages Oregonians in stewardship over their shoreline.

CoastWatch offers opportunities to learn about shoreline ecology and contribute to coastal research and conservation.

Volunteers adopt mile-long segments of Oregon's coast, reporting natural changes and human-induced impacts.  Learn about shoreline ecology, land use planning, and ocean management, and help sustain the health of one of the most biologically diverse and productive coastlines in the world.
