The final presentation in Cape Cod National Seashore's fall symposium, "Beyond the Beach," will be a "State of the Seashore" program with Superintendent George Price at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham at 6:30 PM on October 28. The program is free, accessible, and open to the public.
2014 saw a return to near-normal park operations, following the drastic budget reductions of last year. In addition to routine park operations, Superintendent Price will touch on many of the projects that were accomplished in 2014, including installation of a new roof on Old Harbor Life-Saving Station;the upgrading of many trails across the national seashore; rehabilitation of the Nauset Bike Trail and construction of two new footbridges on the Nauset Marsh Trail; installation of picnic shelters at the Doane Picnic Area in Eastham;development of a parkwide sign plan; investigation into the cracking and spalling at Highland Light; commencement of a bicycle and pedestrian master plan; a successful science symposium; and the selection of a new concessioner at Highland Links and a new interpretive partner at Highland Light.
Superintendent Price will also look ahead to 2015, and provide plans and updates related to shoreline change and anticipated impacts to facilities; construction; and funding needs related to historic buildings and trails that are in disrepair. He will also provide a preview about the upcoming 2016 centennial of the National Park Service. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
