Review for Ocean Blue Project, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our family has known this family for a few years and has had the pleasure of witnessing them grow and flourish in the state of Oregon. Ocean Blue seems to seamlessly navigate the treacherous waters (pun intended) of the environmental non-profit world. They work tirelessly to secure local and state grant funding, promote events in many coastal and inland communities, and partner with key allies. Their events are professionally-run, engaging, and welcoming. We did a beach cleanup in our area and we were really impressed by the integration of a local ciderhouse/brewery. These strategies really maximize the public's interest and brings them into the work in a fun way. The characteristic that really makes Ocean Blue stand apart from the pack is the fact that they are a family unit that welcomes other families into their activism. They are pushing against this neoliberal idea that individuals need to step up to provide and act in the face of retrenching state support. Kids can be a part of the equation. Ocean Blue maintains really dynamic social media that attracts users to watch videos, read relevant research and news, and find out about upcoming events. We are constantly impressed by what Ocean Blue produces.
