Science is complex and dynamic, and it affects all of us. Yet it is often conveyed in academic and technical ways that don’t speak to everyday people. This year’s Science to Policy Summit will explore how we can communicate technical information and science in ways that relate to people’s lives and values. Join us to learn tools and techniques to reach a broader community.Lunch and coffee is included. Register through Evenbrite or order your ticket below.

Join the Estuary Partnership for a family friendly paddle through beautiful Scappoose Bay aboard two 29' canoes. Narrow winding channels and mature Oregon Ash forests provide wonderful access to birds and wildlife. Two Estuary Partnership staff will be on each canoe to steer, offer paddling advice, and share information about the bay and surrounding ecosystem.Registration opens May 18 on Eventbrite. Register early - canoe trips fill up quickly!
The Estuary Partnership is undertaking the first, large-scale effort to identify and map marine debris in the lower Columbia River from Bonneville Dam to the Pacific Ocean. We're tracking small to medium size marine debris (less than 35-feet) - things like tires, styrofoam blocks, small boats, machinery, and other material that may harm the river. We'll use this information to understand how big the problem is, and make a plan for how to clean it up.Submit your marine debris sightings here or view our marine debris map of the lower river here.
