MERTS campus

Clatsop Community College runs a career-technical campus known as the Marine and Environmental Research and Training Station.

With one of the only maritime science programs in the region, it is Oregon’s official maritime training college. The college is also planning an environmental science program based around the campus and surrounding wetlands.

All programs will feature displays and interactive demonstrations, such as a virtual welding machine. Representatives from the college’s criminal justice program, bookstore and admissions department will be on hand to answer questions. Classic cars and street rods will be on display, along with activities through the state Air National Guard.

The campus is at 6550 Liberty Lane in Astoria.
