Our History
The Assateague Island Alliance was formed January 1, 2008 to support Assateague Island National Seashore and its goal to provide enjoyment and hands-on learning experiences for millions of visitors.

What is the purpose of a Friends Group?
The most successful National Parks are supported by an active non-profit "Friends Group" and/or a dedicated "Cooperating Association" that work in partnership with the National Park Service to advance the mission of a specific park unit. Until January of 2008, Assateague Island National Seashore lacked a dedicated friends group with the sole purpose of encouraging the scientific, educational, interpretive, preservation, recreational, and management objectives of Assateague Island National Seashore.
