Preserving our Natural History with Science

The Southeast Coast I&M network is one of thirty-two National Park Service I&M networks across the country. The network's purpose is to provide parks with data and information about their natural resources, and to help with information sharing in natural resource monitoring.

There are 18 administrative areas containing 20 park units, 15 of which contain significant and diverse natural resources. They extend along the Atlantic coast from the North Carolina-Virginia border south to Cape Canaveral, Florida and stretch inland as far as the Alabama Coastal Plain.

These parks and their partners are committed to understanding and preserving the region's resources through science and education. This web site delivers information about these resources and the network's activities. Learn more about specific topics by exploring the links above. You can also visit Information and Outreach for our monthly newsletters to see what we do in the field and beyond. To learn about each park's resources, visit the park pages.
