ABOUT CAPE COD



The Cape Cod National Seashore encompasses 43,607 acres on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts. It includes ponds, woods and beachfront of the Atlantic coastal pine barrens ecoregion across the towns of Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet, Eastham, Orleans and Chatham. Administered by the National Park Service, the National Seashore serves many purposes — for some it is “the beach” while for others it is the wilderness. As the longest continuous stretch of shoreline on the East Coast, the national seashore doesn’t just host sun-loving humans; it provides a refuge for many species, including threatened shorebirds. Salt marshes and forests support a diverse array of plants and animals. And off-shore, the ocean teems with life, including the microscopic plankton that lure massive whales into Cape Cod Bay to feed – plus fish, seals, and the sharks that hunt them. Change is an ever-present force, with wind, waves, and storms constantly shaping and reshaping the land.
