Welcome to the Cape Chronicle blog. Here you will find Cape Hatteras National Seashore resource management and off-road vehicle management updates, interpretive information, and employee-submitted articles.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore was the first of a series of national seashores established to preserve significant segments of unspoiled barrier islands. These “outer banks” are part of a dynamic system that is continually changing in response to the forces of wind and wave. Although it is a harsh, demanding environment, the islands have provided resources and habitation for human use before and since European exploration of this continent.
I hope you enjoy this new blog. Feel free to email the park if you have specific topics you would like featured in future Cape Chronicle posts.
