Utah Ocean Coalition

The Utah Ocean Coalition chapter of the Inland Ocean Coalition was founded in 2016 in Salt Lake City by Tricia Petzold to establish a summit to sea adult and youth environmental conservation advocacy program.  We have worked with Rowland Hall Summer Works to establish the Summit to Sea Youth Ocean Ranger course which took place in Pigeon Key, Florida on June 8-16, 2018  with 29 students from Utah, Colorado, Michigan, and California.  We have participated in the Healthy Oceans Coalition Advocacy Training in 2017 and 2018.

Utah Ocean Coalition has partnered in efforts of conservation with Neptune Divers.  We are working on decreasing single use plastics in Utah through the Suck the Straws out of Utah campaign.  We hope to participate in the Blue Vision Summit in Washington D.C. in 2019.
