This past summer, the Maryland Coastal Bays Program (MCBP), a National Estuary Program located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, hired 17 Coastal Stewards, ages 15 to 23. The Coastal Stewards program is made possible through a unique partnership program of the MCBP, Assateague Island National Seashore, and Assateague State Park. Having completed its third year, the program has been making a difference since its beginning, but there have also been struggles along the way.

A case study of the program was published in URBAN COAST – download it here.
