Pennsylvania Sea Grant
Focused on the Lake Erie and Delaware River watersheds, Pennsylvania Sea Grant promotes the ecological and economic sustainability of Pennsylvania's coastal resources through research and outreach, and facilitates public understanding of environmental resources and issues impacting the states's coastal communities and ecosystems. The program enhances teacher and student environmental literacy and understanding of coastal ecosystems while also promoting science-based management by expanding statewide applied research projects. The Pennsylvania Sea Grant program is a partnership of Penn State University, The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The National Sea Grant College Program (Sea Grant) works to create and maintain healthy coastal environments and economies. The Sea Grant network includes 32 programs based at top universities in every coastal and Great Lakes state, Puerto Rico, and Guam. The programs of the Sea Grant network work together to help citizens understand, conserve and better utilize America’s coastal, ocean and Great Lakes resources. One of four national strategic priorities through 2013 is to improve the resilience of coastal communities to hazards, including the effects of climate change. See the National Sea Grant College Program organization entry for more information.
