Learn and Explore

As winter shifts to spring, and then into summer, Cape Cod air becomes warmer and more humid, the days longer, and the pace quickens as Cape Cod prepares for the summer season. Spring is the perfect time to explore the many dimensions of the national seashore during a ranger-guided program. From strolls, hikes, and canoe trips, to science and author events and open houses and tours at historic buildings, including lighthouses, there's so much to explore!

Check our online calendar for event dates and details, or download the pdf version of our September-October events calendar. Stop by the Salt Pond Visitor Center (open year-round) or Province Lands Visitor Center (open beginning April 14) to chat with rangers and plan your visit.

With the exception of canoe trips, all ranger-guided programs in the spring are free. Some partners charge an admission fee to visit their facilities. 


July/August Only

Recreation.gov is not used for spring programs. Reservations are made by calling the Visitor Center.
