This professional development workshop is for current educators, pre-service teachers, and active STEAM Coach Volunteers. This workshop theme is focused on crab and the benefits, issues, and solutions to healthy estuaries. This event is scheduled for Feb. 23-24 and will take place in Garibaldi, OR.
We are looking for a few more dedicated volunteers to assist in TEP's county wide bacteria monitoring program. This program has been running for over 20 years! Volunteers collect water samples across our watershed that are then analyzed for harmful bacteria concentrations. This data directly informs the community where to recreate safely in our watersheds! (link to bacteria map)
This opportunity requires volunteers to commit to a dedicated route of 8-12 samples collected every two weeks. We are currently looking for volunteers willing to complete routes near Oceanside, Nehalem, and Pacific City. If at all interested please complete the volunteer application linked here!

Before you recreate, check the bacterial levels of Tillamook County's waterways. Our water quality map covers freshwater rivers and streams, as well as saltwater beaches. Levels are updated every two weeks thanks to our dedicated Volunteer Water Quality Program.

This is the official video covering the Southern Flow Corridor Landowner Preferred Alternative Project. This project is a collaboration between the community, state, and federal agencies. The result is a project that has significant benefits for both flood mitigation and habitat restoration. It is a win/win for both the town of Tillamook and the fish and wildlife of the area.
