We Need Your Help Collecting Data on Mid-Atlantic Recreation!

Your help is needed to ensure that your favorite recreational areas are considered in coastal and ocean planning coming to the Mid-Atlantic. The Surfrider Foundation, partnering with Ecotrust, Monmouth University’s Urban Coast Institute, and The Nature Conservancy and in close collaboration with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean, is conducting an online survey of recreational uses such as beach goers, swimmers, beach wildlife viewers, surfers, kayakers, windsurfers, and divers.

Participation is simple: go to and enter your email address. You can then fill out the survey at your own pace, saving as you go.


Recreational uses are poorly mapped in the Mid-Atlantic and better information is needed. The information collected in this survey will be incorporated into an online data portal operated by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean, or MARCO. MARCO is an arrangement by the Governors of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia to improve the health of Mid-Atlantic ocean and coastal resources, and ensure that they continue to contribute to the economic vitality of coastal communities.
