PSU Oregon Coast Values Survey

A research team at Portland State University is conducting a survey of Oregonians to understand how Oregon residents use and value the coast and ocean. The survey asks about opinions on marine management activities, and preferences for future management and includes an online mapping activity, allowing those who take the survey to indicate places on the coast that are important to them, and to recommend management changes to specific areas.
The goal of the survey is to reach a broad set of adult Oregon residents who have lived in Oregon for 1+ years.

This project is funded by Oregon Sea Grant and findings will be shared in a final report to managers, researchers, and the public. All responses will be anonymous and only summaries of findings will be shared.
