Created by Congress in 1965, Assateague Island National Seashore was established to preserve the outstanding Mid-Atlantic coastal resources of Assateague Island and its adjacent waters and the natural processes upon which they depend, and to provide high quality resource-compatible recreational opportunities. To support these purposes, the National Park Service is preparing a new General Management Plan (GMP) for the seashore.
