Help Support Port Orford Field Station

Donations to Port Orford Field Station Funds support student learning, including research, education, and community engagement opportunities. 

Port Orford Field Station Development Fund

A south coast outpost supporting research, education, and engagement on Oregon's beautiful wind-swept southern coast.

The station supports access to this unique marine and terrestrial ecosystem for transdisciplinary research and education, community priorities, and economic opportunities.  The field station has lab and classroom space, along with lodging for visiting scientists and students, and an air fill station for scientific and recreational divers.

Your donation will enhance our ability to continue to provide this vital support to students and researchers, and to expand our work in this hard-working rural community, as its residents embrace the new blue economy.
