Beyond the Beach Series Slated for Cape Cod National Seashore
Contact: Sue Moynihan, Chief, Interpretation and Cultural Resources Management, 508-957-0738
For many summer visitors, Cape Cod National Seashore is "the beach." But Outer Cape residents know the national seashore offers much more in its many dimensions and moods, and compelling natural and cultural resource stories. On six consecutive Tuesday evenings from October 1 through November 5, staff specialists and guest presenters will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the national seashore's diverse resources and issues, from sea level rise and climate change, to animal migrations and seismic research and education. All programs are free and wheelchair-accessible, and will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 PM at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham.
