2013 has been a year of successes and challenges for Cape Cod National Seashore. Among the successes were the completion of new facilities at Herring Cove Beach and phase one of the rehabilitation of the Nauset Bike Trail. Challenges included serious erosion that threatened the interpretive facilities at the Marconi Station Site, and operational reductions caused by budget reductions.
On Tuesday, November 12 Superintendent George Price will present the program, "State of the Seashore: Successes and Challenges of 2013 and a Look Ahead to 2014." The free program will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 PM at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Several topics will be discussed, and there will be a question and answer period.

In 1990, an intense series of storms uncovered a prehistoric site on Coast Guard Beach in Eastham, MA. Archaeologists excavated the Carns Site, which was lived in by native peoples during the Early and Middle Woodland period, or approximately 2,100 to 1,100 years ago.
