Mission Statement

In Oregon, the beaches belong to the people. As part of Oregon's tradition of environmental stewardship, the Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition serves as the guardian of the public interest for Oregon's coastal region. Oregon Shores is dedicated to preserving the natural communities, ecosystems and landscapes of the Oregon coast while conserving the public's access. Oregon Shores pursues these ends through education, advocacy, and engaging citizens to keep watch over and defend the Oregon coast.

Description

Oregon Shores is a 40-year-old regional conservation organization that has won many victories in preserving special places on the Oregon coast. The group works to protect the entire region, from the crest of the Coast Range to the edge of the continental shelf. The Land Use Program works with Oregon's land use planning system, with local jurisdictions and through the courts to assure protection for coastal resources. The Ocean Program campaigns for marine reserves and other aspects of marine conservation. The CoastWatch Program organizes volunteers to monitor and protect the shoreline; every mile of Oregon's coastline has been adopted, although there is always a need for fresh "mile adopters." And the Climate Action Project works with coastal citizens to begin long-range adaptive planning to address coming climate-related impacts. The group also holds the annual Coast Conference and other activities aimed at educating Oregon's citizens about the coastal environment and how they can help to protect it.
