Climate Friendly Parks


The Climate Friendly Parks Program (CFP) is a collaboration of the National Park Service and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that helps parks with comprehensive support and with tools and resources to address climate change both within park boundaries and in surrounding communities.

Cape Cod National Seashore has taken the steps to becoming a Climate Friendly Park, including developing a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions inventory, completing and committing to implement a Climate Action Plan, and committing to ongoing monitoring of GHG reduction progress and reporting the results.

Climate Friendly Park Action Plan Implementation
From May 19-20, 2010, Cape Cod National Seashore hosted a Climate Friendly Parks Workshop to develop a Climate Action Plan. This plan describes the actions the park will take to reduce its GHG emissions. The park has a Green Team that meets monthly to develop, track, and implement climate friendly initiatives laid out in our Action Plan.
