Oregon Sea Grant at the Lincoln County Extension Office
Sea Grant Extension helps bring the resources of research and higher education to bear on real-world issues - in this case, issues important to those who live near, earn their livelihoods from, and visit Oregon's oceans and coastal communities. Sea Grant Extension faculty share dual responsibility to the OSU Extension Service and to the university-based Oregon Sea Grant Program. Sea Grant is a nation-wide partnership of universities and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that aims to promote better understanding and use of America's ocean and coastal resources.
