Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore

The creation of Cape Cod National Seashore in 1961 made it possible to have a Cape Cod adventure today similar in ways to Thoreau’s. One can walk for miles on the “ocean sidewalk,” as Thoreau described the great beach, and not see a single house or person. We are fortunate to have natural areas like this set aside, places where an individual can get away and experience a little wildness. Today’s outer Cape experience would not be possible without the National Seashore and the ongoing conservation efforts of organizations like Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore is a non-profit organization of caring individuals who have a very special love and respect for this spectacular National Seashore. The organization funds worthy environmental, historical, educational, and recreational programs, publicizes issues that affect the protection and preservation of the Seashore's resources, provides volunteers for important projects such as trail maintenance programs, beach clean-ups and dune grass plantings and manages several special funds that contribute to important educational, archival and research projects at the Seashore.

Recently, they have embarked on a major fund-raising effort to provide interpretive displays and furnishings for the Old Harbor Life-Saving Station museum at Race Point and your contributions are welcomed and will be put to good use preserving this special area that Thoreau visited and wrote so eloquently about. All contributions to Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore are tax deductible. Visit their web site: www.fccns.org
