Update on Spring Field Season

We wanted to share with you that the ODFW Marine Reserves Program has made the decision to postpone our spring field season. This is in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing best practices, and recent Executive Order issued by Governor Kate Brown urging Oregonians to “Stay Home, Save Lives.”

Keeping our volunteers, contractors, and staff safe is our top priority right now. Our current plan is to postpone the field season through May 31st. We will be reassessing in the coming weeks and months to determine if or when we might begin summer or fall field work when it is safe to do so.

From the ODFW Marine Reserves Team:

May you be safe, may you be healthy, and please feel free to reach out to us. Our team members are all currently working remotely from home, but you can reach any of us at our state emails.
