On five consecutive Tuesday evenings from September 30 through October 28, staff specialists and guest presenters will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the national seashore's diverse resources and issues, from prescribed fire and coastal change, to animal migrations and salt marsh restoration. All programs are free and wheelchair-accessible, and will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 PM at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham.
