Climate Friendly Parks Program at Cape Cod National Seashore
Climate Friendly Parks
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.
Climate Action Plan
From May 19-20, 2010, Cape Cod National Seashore hosted a Climate Friendly Parks Workshop to begin developing a Climate Action Plan. This plan describes the actions (policies, programs, and measures) the park will take to reduce its GHG emissions.Read about the goals and sustainable strategies Cape Cod National Seashore will use to mitigate emissions and to adapt to climate change impacts in our Action Plan.
The park has an Environmental Management Team that meets monthly to develop, track, and implement climate friendly initiatives laid out in our Action Plan.
