The Climate Friendly Parks Program (CFP) is a collaboration of the National Park Service and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that helps parks fulfill their role as stewards of the nation's most important natural and cultural resources. The program provides national parks with comprehensive support and with tools and resources to address climate change both within park boundaries and in surrounding communities.

Cape Cod National Seashore has taken the steps to becoming a Climate Friendly Park, including developing a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions inventory, completing a Climate Action Plan, committing to implementing the Action Plan, and committing to ongoing monitoring of GHG reduction progress and reporting the results.
