About the Southeast Coast Network

A multi-level organizational structure ensures accountability and efficiency of the SECN program. The network is responsible to a Board of Directors and Technical Committee composed of park superintendents and staff who participate on a rotational basis. Program guidance and oversight is provided by the Inventory & Monitoring Division of the National Park Service's Washington Office.

The network consists of ten full-time personnel that work closely with park staff at Southeast Coast Network park units, and several graduate assistants and interns that fill support and research roles.
