Welcome to Spring with the hope that yes, it will get warmer so we can enjoy Cape Cod National Seashore. Many exciting things are coming in the months ahead as the park ramps up for the celebration of its fiftieth birthday. A few of those events are detailed below, and some others are listed on the left. For even more info, click on the link to the park at the bottom of the page.

Siobhan A. O'Riordan, Director of Partner Development at the National Park Foundation (NPF) met recently with Friends Board of Directors to discuss a proposed work plan tailored to our group.

Park Partners Project meeting

Meeting with Siobhan O'Riordan

This plan includes creation of new committees, expanding our membership, increasing public awareness of what we do, and enhancing fund-raising capacity.


Friends was one of seven park partner groups selected by NPF  across the nation to participate in this Project. This year-long pilot program will help us to become a more sustainable and effective partner of the Seashore.   


If you are interested in joining any of our committees, please send us an email at info@fccns.org.

Hunting for Treasures

As part of the fiftieth celebration Friends has organized a Treasure Hunt. We want you to discover some of the lesser-known places within the Park. A Challenge Booklet will be available at the visitor centers.  To find the answers to our 80 questions, you must visit a site and search for the clues. Completed answer sheets can be returned to Friends for possible rewards for those with the most points! This will begin in late May.  More details and a booklet download will appear on our website soon..
