Welcome to the CERF 2023 Conference Site!

At the CERF 2023 conference, you and our colleagues came together to network, celebrate our work, learn from each other, and grow within our amazing field as we endeavor to connect science and society in the collective goals of preserving coastal and estuarine habitats, resources, and heritage. We hope you will join our international cohort of scientists and researchers who will be attending the event in Portland, Oregon, USA 12–16 November 2023.

CERF's 50th Anniversary

In 2021 CERF celebrated it's golden anniversary. We took that unique opportunity to reflect on our rich history as a society, the past 50 years of estuarine and coastal research, and successes in translating that science into effective management, education, and outreach. More importantly, 2021 offered us the opportunity to learn from that history and look ahead to the next 50 years of coastal science and management, identifying the grand challenges we face in the coming decades, and testing solutions to address them.
