Oregon’s Marine Reserves and Marine Protected Areas were designated in 2012 with the goals of conserving marine habitats and biodiversity, providing a framework for scientific research and effectiveness monitoring, and avoiding significant adverse social and economic impacts on ocean users and coastal communities. It’s been 10 years since the reserves were established. How has this program performed? What are the next steps? Please join this panel discussion where we will hear from marine reserves experts to understand the successes and challenges of Oregon’s marine reserve program. There will be a Q&A session with an opportunity to ask the panel questions. This is especially timely as OSU recently wrote an assessment report on Oregon’s marine reserve program which has been provided to the legislature in the 2023 session.
