Ranger-Guided Activities

A ranger wearing a grey shirt and green shorts with a straw hat carries a clear plastic tote and a net. He is walking down the beach next to a child wearing a grey shirt and a man wearing a ball cap.
Ranger-guided programs are offered from spring through fall. Explore the many facets of Cape Cod National Seashore through guided walks, talks, performance and music events, canoe trips, campfires, open houses at historic buildings, yoga, and more!

Learn and Explore

As summer shifts to fall, Cape Cod air becomes drier, skies become bluer, and the pace on the Outer Cape slows. This 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 through October 15) to chat with rangers and plan your visit.

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


July/August Only

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