About AIA

We believe Assateague Island National Seashore is a feeling! It's not just a spot on the map designated to protect a natural barrier island ecosystem and it's wildlife, but it's also a place to escape. To get lost and be found. A place that will envelop you with invigorating sea air and allow your heart to dance with the waves and playful horses. The island evokes the spirit of adventure and exploration in all who visit and that's why our volunteers and staff are so dedicated to this organization.
