Join Ranger Jody Anastasio to enjoy the sunset, and maybe the Orionid meteor shower, if skies are clear.

Bats of Cape Cod is scheduled for Sunday, October 28 from 2 to 3 pm. This indoor program at Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham will be led by researchers currently surveying bat populations in the seashore.

Weather permitting, join the bat team at sunset at the Nauset Bicycle Trail for a short walk and mist netting survey. This program is wheelchair accessible.
A Fresh Look at the Great Island Tavern Site with Cape Cod National Seashore Historian Bill Burke is slated for October 30 at 9:30 am. During this guided hike (two hours round trip in soft sand), explore the stories of this remarkable 1690s archeological site through research conducted by Plimoth Plantation in the 1960s and by UMass Boston this past summer. Wear sturdy shoes and bring drinking water and a snack. Meet at the Great Island trailhead in Wellfleet.
