National Estuary Program (NEP)

State of the Bays Report for Tillamook Estuaries

The Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP) is one of 28 National Estuary Programs (NEPs) working throughout the United States and Puerto Rico to protect and restore the health of estuaries while supporting economic and recreation activities.

Increasing development and changing landscapes continue to pressure and influence these estuaries and watersheds. This State of the Bays report discusses these issues as well as looks to the future of restoration and conservation.
