Spring is in the air, which means it's the perfect time for a school field trip to Cape Cod National Seashore! The seashore's outstanding natural and cultural resources and hands-on learning opportunities make it a perfect destination for school field trips.

Two new beautiful permanent exhibits have recently been installed in the center to enhance learning opportunities. The main lobby is now home to a colorful and informative orientation map of Cape Cod. In the museum, in place of the long-standing flora and fauna displays, visitors will find a fascinating exhibit on Native peoples, past and present, including a partial wetu (traditional dwelling.) In addition, 12-minute park films, including "Sands of Time," are played on a regularly-scheduled basis. The films provide perspective on the natural and cultural history of Cape Cod. Supervised school groups are also welcome to visit the seashore's six beaches and 11 self-guiding trails. Film descriptions and schedules, downloadable copies of outdoor scavenger hunts, and additional guidance and information are available on the seashore's website. Visit www.nps.gov/caco.

Click on "For Teachers," then "Plan a Field Trip." Teachers planning to visit Salt Pond Visitor Center should call 508-255-3421, ext. 0 for more information and to make a reservation.
