U.S Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)

The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) oversees the Endangered Species Act listing review and decisions. After evaluating the best available scientific and commercial information regarding the greater sage-grouse in 2015, the Service determined that protection for the greater sage-grouse under the Endangered Species Act is no longer warranted and withdrew the species from the candidate species list. USFWS remains an important partner in SageCon as the state implements the Action Plan and prepares for the 2020 sage-grouse status review.

Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning

The Center mission is to conduct applied research with a broad range of partners and nurture community toward improved systems of STEM learning for all. It was established in 2012 to work across the Oregon State University (OSU) campus to enhance capacity in STEM learning research, and the impact of this research on the practice of teaching and learning. Within the context of OSU, STEM includes the natural, physical and social sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics, as single disciplines or in any combination, and extends to the integrative STEM disciplines forestry, agriculture, fisheries, (veterinary) medicine, and health sciences. The center is unique among STEM center counterparts around the country in its focus on research and its commitment to understanding learning and engagement across all settings (in and out of school) and across the lifespan, for all audiences, ranging from young to old learners, laypeople to STEM professionals, within both formal educational and free-choice learning contexts and settings.

Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans - PISCO

PISCO is a long-term program led by scientists from four core campuses: Oregon State University; Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station; University of California, Santa Cruz; and University of California, Santa Barbara. PISCO is designed to understand the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem through the collection and sharing of biological, chemical, and physical data about ocean ecosystems in the nearshore portions of the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem. Partnerships with Oregon State University, Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE), and the Pacific Rocky Intertidal Monitoring program at UC Santa Cruz help to provide access platforms to the PISCO data.
