Making Science Accessible

Welcome to Pennsylvania Sea Grant! We strive to make science available and accessible for everyone. We’ve thoughtfully reviewed our resources and are currently refreshing many to make sure they meet accessibility standards. Contact us if you cannot find a resource or need assistance.

Pennsylvania Sea Grant staff are based in Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and Erie, and our program focus on the statewide practical use and conservation of natural resources – for a healthy environment and resilient communities. Our work happens in watersheds within the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions, and we partner with decision-makers, academic institutions, Sea Grant programs, and many other individuals and groups to build bridges between science and people. Learn more about our program.
