The mission of Coast Kids is to help participants to develop a sense of place - a geographical and ecological awareness that will result in more enjoyment, and ultimately more stewardship of the environment.More on the Coast Kids >
An "On The Water Advocate"
For Our Waterways
The Assateague Coastkeeper® is your public advocate, protecting the Atlantic Coastal Bays for the people, plants, and animals who rely on clean and safe water.
The Coastkeeper® is an on-the-water monitor who patrols the watershed by boat in search of evidence of pollution or other water quality problems. The Coastkeeper® also reaches out to and engages citizens to provide additional eyes, ears and even noses to identify and report pollution sources.
You have a natural and legal right to water that is swim'-able, fish-able and drinkable. The Coastkeeper® is there to stand firmly on the side of you and your family to safeguard this right against polluters.More on the Coastkeeper >
