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

Fall on the Outer Cape is typically delightful. The warm, humid days of summer give way to cooler, drier weather and sapphire blue skies. As we move into October, nights can be cold and the days crisp. Wild cranberries begin to ripen, and trees and shrubs don their fall colors of vibrant yellow, orange, and red. 

Many ranger-guided programs continue into mid-October. Join us for long or short hikes, wildlife walks, beach strolls, open houses and tours at lighthouses and other historic buildings, canoe trips, and art programs.  Fall is also the time when many Outer Cape towns celebrate their beauty and culture during weekend festivals.

Check our online calendar for event dates and details, or download the pdf version of our July-August events calendar. Stop by the Salt Pond Visitor Center or Province Lands Visitor Center to chat with rangers and plan your visit.

Most ranger-guided programs are free, but some are fee-based. Some partners charge an admission fee to visit their facilities.  


July/August Only
