The Geoscientists-In-the-Parks (GIP) program works with partners to match experienced students, professionals, and retired geologists with opportunities in the National Park Service. To date, over 50 participants have been placed at coastal park units and have helped with coastal research, interpretation, education, inventory and monitoring, and restoration projects. Currents positions and completed projects may be viewed on the Geoscientists-In-the-Parks website.
