Volunteers support Cape Cod National Seashore in a variety of ways, such as: providing interpretive services at visitor centers and historic structures; participating in historical reenactments; assisting with natural and cultural history research projects; and helping to protect endangered shorebirds. Government housing is extremely limited and is unavailable during certain times of the year. The majority of our volunteer opportunities, therefore, are filled by persons who live within a reasonable commuting distance or have the ability to find and pay for their own nearby lodging. Cape Cod National Seashore does not have campgrounds, trailer pads for volunteers, or camp host positions.

Today, a dedicated group of families, individuals and non-profits carry on a unique heritage of art, reflection, and nature study at the dune shacks in Provincetown and Truro. A recent ethnographic study entitled, “Dwelling in the Dunes”, documents the people who live there today.
