about us


Going Coastal, Inc. is a 501c3 all-volunteer, youth and community serving organization dedicated to connecting people to coastal resources. Our programs address issues of coastal and shoreline sustainability, maritime heritage preservation, the intersection of culture, arts and the environment, water access and quality, development of sustainable economies and coastal resilience, and green jobs and full community involvement. Our projects are designed to raise awareness of the immense value of the shore environment, encourage a sense of community and common history and promote preservation, protection and conservation.

Our goal is to bring you and your family to the New York waterfront, help keep it clean, and teach you about its ecology and history. Through the efforts of our volunteers and information initiatives, we encourage adults and children to appreciate, enjoy, and preserve it.  Our vision is that our shared waters are clean, safe and accessible ensuring an improved quality of life for all New Yorkers.
