Our Chapters

In keeping with our vision to inspire inland communities to be stewards of our ocean, our chapters promote healthy oceans through education and community engagement. The Colorado Ocean Coalition is leading an effort to provide an organizational model and guidance for inland communities to create their own ocean chapters.  Chapters work together to expand current inland ocean programs and share successful initiatives.


Inland Ocean Coalition Chapters include: Great Lakes, Prairie, and Utah. Check out what each of our chapters is up to!
