Cape Cod Wildlife Festival!
September 11 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
After canceling in 2019 due to the weather and 2020 due to COVID, we are excited to finally be able to safely gather and celebrate wildlife! The Festival showcases local environmental groups dedicated to Cape Cod wildlife and habitats. Following current guidelines, we highly encourage masking up for the event and multiple hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout. Festival is free to the general public, but donations are welcomed and appreciated!
The Cape Cod Wildlife Festival will feature exhibits, information, and fun educational activities from some of our Collaborative members such as Barnstable Clean Water Coalition, Cape Wildlife Center, Center for Coastal Studies, Mass Audubon Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, National Marine Life Center, Orenda Wildlife Land Trust, Whale & Dolphin Conservation, and Wild Care.
Bethany Jakubson of Amazing Animal Ambassadors will present live animal education presentations at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Other exhibitors include the Barnstable Department of Natural Resources and Books by the Sea of Centerville, who will be there with four local authors signing books between 12 p.m – 1 p.m. The authors include Joanne Evans, Gil Newton, Margaret Moncy, and Consi Berghausen.
The Festival will also feature food, drinks, and ice cream from Cape Cod Donuts, Lewis Brothers Solar Ice Cream, and John’s Dogs and More food trucks; and live music from local band Just Another Guru.
The Cape Cod Wildlife Collaborative will offer special door prizes this year. Every hour, a winner will be randomly chosen and could win free t-shirts, whale adoptions, behind-the-scenes tours, guided trail walks, and more, all provided by Collaborative member organizations.
