The National Park Service is entrusted with managing 86 ocean and Great Lakes parks across 22 states and four territories. With over 11,000 miles of coast and 2.5 million acres of ocean and Great Lakes waters, the parks provide tremendous recreational benefits and biological and cultural values to the nation. The Park Service celebrates its 100th birthday in 2016. The Park Service Centennial will include events and activities across the ocean and coastal parks as part of the Find Your Park Centennial campaign as well as virtual experiences via social media and the web. This webinar will provide a brief overview of the breadth and extent of coastal resources and issues in the National Park System and the NPS Centennial.
