Happy 50th Birthday Cape Cod National Seashore
On August 7, 1961, President Kennedy signed legislation to protect and manage about 44,000 acres of beaches, salt marshes, and kettle ponds on Cape Cod's outer coast. Today, the Cape Cod National Seashore is among the top-10-most-visited national park sites in the country. But when it first was proposed, opponents feared that the large, federally-operated park might stifle the Cape's growth and depress its economy. This week – to mark the half century milestone, our sister station WCAI - in collaboration with the Cape Cod Times – set out to tell this and other untold stories of the historic National Park. The series also examines environmental issues impacting the Seashore lands. For example – what kind of toll do the four-five million annual visitors take on the ecology of the park? Joining me now with more are: WCAI science editor and author of the Climatide.org blog, Heather Goldstone; and WGBH/WCAI reporterSean Corcoran
