BREWSTER, MA — The Friends of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster announce their monthly meeting on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 12:30pm, which includes a potluck lunch. Following, special guest speaker Samantha Gray will give a presentation on the Cape Cod Canal Story at 1:30pm. The public is welcome at all or part of the meeting.
Millions of people cross the bridges over the Cape Cod Canal each year. But how many know what this engineering marvel is all about? A US Army Corps of Engineers Park Ranger, Samantha Gray, will present a program that offers excellent insight into the rich history, fascinating features, and vigilant operation of the Cape Cod Canal. Through video, photos and stories, the Canal's unique blend of engineered and natural histories will be revealed.
Since the opening of the Canal Visitor’s Center in 2001, Gray has been the force behind its transformation, making it the focal point of the Cape Cod Canal’s interpretive mission, and a centerpiece of the New England District’s natural resource program.
Gray was selected by the Corps for the American Recreation Coalition’s 2018 Legends Award. The award recognizes federal managers for outstanding work in improving outdoor recreation experiences and opportunities for the American people. Gray was one of seven federal managers to receive the award this year.
*Admission is Free/ Attendees are welcome to join the Friends of CCMNH for a Potluck Lunch at 12:30 PM. Please note that the Museum exhibits are not open.
