On Tuesday, November 12, 2013, Cape Cod National Seashore Superintendent George Price will present the State of the Seashore at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham.

During the free program, which begins at 6:30 p.m. and is slated to run an hour, Price will discuss a variety of ups and downs from this past season.

As part of "State of the Seashore: Successes and Challenges of 2013 and a Look Ahead at 2014", attendees will hear about the new facilities at Herring Cove Beach and the work being done on the Nauset Bike Trail.

Price will also discuss many of the challenges he and his staff faced including budget cuts, the government imposed shutdown and the severe erosion that required the demolition of the Marconi Station site.
