CONNECT is an annual training developed by and for conservation districts, land trusts, and watershed councils around the state.

Held in the spring since 2009, CONNECT provides training focused on the technical, administrative, and regulatory aspects of conservation implementation. CONNECT delivers content that is specific and relevant to current conservation issues while providing a forum for the conservation community to network and discuss emerging issues.

OCEAN greatly appreciates the support of its sponsors, who help make CONNECT the most comprehensive and strongly attended technical training for Oregon's conservation districts and watershed councils. Sponsorship enables natural resource vendors and agencies to showcase their goods and services to conservation district, watershed council, and land trusts throughout the state.
