Many individuals, agencies, and organizations contributed to the 2015 update of the Oregon Nearshore Strategy. Any work that addresses the complexity and dynamics of the nearshore ocean, and the values and uses that Oregonians apply to it, relies on the interactive efforts of many people. Their constructive participation has helped to build a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
We thank the following people and organizations for their tremendous effort, vision and insight:
To all Oregonians who shared their vision, values, and concerns for the future of Oregon’s marine environment.
