Featured Resource from Government Information: Cape Cod National Seashore

July 10, 2012


Government Information in the UNH Library presents our latest featured resource from the National Park Service on the Cape Cod National Seashore. This resource features sections on history, culture, photo galleries, and an area for teachers.

The site includes information on their residency programs for artists, the archaeology of Cape Cod, lesson plans, a reading list, and information about overnight educational group opportunities.

Henry David Thoreau knew Cape Cod well, once writing that "A man may stand there and put all America behind him." Today, part of the Cape has been designated Cape Cod National Seashore. Appropriately enough, the legislation to create this remarkable site was signed into law by President John F. Kennedy, who also knew and loved the area.
