Seaside, Oregon

April 17-19, 2018

Our CONNECT 2018 offerings at the Oregon Coast were once again well received and showed how great a conservation community we have in Oregon. Building upon last year's open registration format, we once again had a large and broadly representative audience with over 300 attendees from across the state. We offered over 60 sessions ranging from field tecnical and conservation topics to leadership, policy, and administrative topics. It was truly a great experience.

OCEAN thanks all of the districts, councils, land trusts, and partners that pitched in to help deliver this year's program. We also thank our sponsors (listed below) for their support. Without them, CONNECT simply wouldn't be possible. Please show them your appreciation and let them know that their sponsorship makes a difference. As always, OCEAN thanks the CONNECT 2018 presenters for delivering the relevant, high quality information that has become a hallmark of the CONNECT sessions.
