New Coastal Recreation Data Available for the Mid-Atlantic

Through a collaborative partnership between the Surfrider Foundation, Monmouth University, The Nature Conservancy, and Point 97 there is now new, non-consumptive recreational use data available for the Mid-Atlantic region.

Using a web-based survey tool, the group collected nearly 1,500 complete surveys resulting in 22,000 unique data points. And now, for the first time through Marine Planner, regional scale data layers are available for planners and managers to better-inform planning or management decisions that impact or influence surfing, boating, sight-seeing and other non-consumptive activities throughout the region.

Visit Surfrider for a link to the complete report as well as regional fact sheets for New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware.
