About Assateague Island National Seashore
Established in 1965, Assateague Island National Seashore protects the barrier island located off the coasts of Maryland and Virginia. The national seashore is known for its unspoiled beaches, stunning natural beauty, and unique wildlife.
One of the most notable features of Assateague Island National Seashore is its population of wild horses. These horses are believed to be descendants of domestic horses that were brought to the island by early settlers and have been living on the island for centuries.
In addition to the wild horses, Assateague Island National Seashore is home to a variety of other wildlife, including migratory birds, sea turtles, and other marine animals. Visitors can explore the park's many hiking trails, go kayaking or canoeing, or simply enjoy the beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters.

Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker studied photography with Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park during the summer of 1979. The experience solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all our major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
"I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards. I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you're helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too."
By creating these iconic images, I hope to help generate awareness — not only of the grandeur of these amazing places — but also for the need of continued protection and operation of the parks. I think that everyone — now and in the future — should have a chance to enjoy the often-fascinating and always awe-inspiring majesty of our National Parks.
