In conjunction with this month’s exhibit, Underwater Lily, featuring William Scully’s fine art photography, Mr. Scully and Cape Cod National Seashore mapping specialist Mark Adams will team up to present a program about the explorations that led to these photographs and will discuss insights into the scientific and aesthetic experiences that are possible in these seashore environments. This free, one-hour program takes place on June 21, at 2 PM, at the Salt Pond Visitor Center.

Mark Adams has been the national seashore GIS specialist since 1992, working with the Natural Resources team to document coastal change, hydrology, vegetation, and wildlife. He is also a painter/video artist exhibiting in local galleries.

As a photographer and artist, William Scully's work photographing nature has taken him to remote island locations in several oceans. He has also been fascinated by the familiar and largely unseen underwater world of the outer Cape's glacial kettle ponds.

IF YOU GO: Salt Pond Visitor Center is located at the intersection of Route 6 and Nauset Road in Eastham, and can be contacted by calling 508-255-3421.
