The SECN I&M Program is one of 32 National Park Service I&M Networks across the country established to facilitate collaboration, information sharing, and economies of scale in natural resource monitoring. It is comprised of seventeen national parks with significant natural resources and extends along the Atlantic coast from the North Carolina-Virginia border south to Cape Canaveral, Florida and inland as far as Atlanta, Georgia and the Alabama Coastal Plain.

These parks and their partners are dedicated to understanding and preserving the region's unique resources through science and education. This web site delivers information about these resources, the Network's Inventory & Monitoring Program, and the scientific activities underway. Learn more about specific topics by exploring the links on the left or visit the park units pages to discover the particular resources found at each of these special places.
