What a whirlwind of month! Things have been very busy with exciting new personal and professional experiences! From crab fishing to preparing for the first Territorial Sea Plan Rocky Shores working group meeting. Traveling with the Coastal Program has been eye opening. Even though I have been in Oregon for 2 years, there is still so much to learn about marine policy. It has really made me appreciate the work that the coastal program does.
In preparation for the first TSPRS Working Group Andy put me to work on the OregonOcean.info website as well as the Citizens Guide to the Amendment Process and a needs survey. Since, the website has been published along with the document. Check it out at the link above!
We have also been traveling a bunch for different conferences spanning from Portland to Florence with many more to come!
Week 1 – OWET Conference in Portland. Pictured is a marine cable cross section.
Week 2 (I think) – Coastal Staff Meeting in Newport, OR. We also walked the evacuation route and tried to figure out how many fellows/past fellows we could fit in a photo!
Week 2 – My dogter, Timber, Mananita State Park after my first morning crabbing!
Week 4 – Florence Oregon for the Symposium by the Sea Conference
