The 200th anniversary of the Coast and Geodetic Survey is an opportunity for us to honor our heritage by celebrating our innovative and dedicated people, programs, and services. Throughout the year, we will look back and celebrate our past, take stock of where we are in the present, and consider the possibilities that lie in our future. The anniversary is also an opportunity for NOAA to share our story with the American people, linking our past, present, and future contributions to the health and vitality of our nation.
So join us in this nationwide celebration, beginning January 1, 2007 and ending December 31, 2007. Throughout the year, you can participate in a variety of events and happenings and obtain outreach and educational materials, all to learn about how NOAA has impacted our everyday lives throughout its 200-year history.
