As we wrote back on June 5, Aug. 7 marks the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's signature on legislation that brought the Cape Cod National Seashore into being.

Every day on this nearly 70-square-mile environment of beach and dunes and forest and marsh is special. But the National Park Service rangers have an array of celebratory activities planned for Aug, 7. Stop by either visitor center at 11:30 a.m. for musical performances and cake and return between 2:30 and 4 p.m. to create something to place in a time capsule.

In addition, noted authors will read from their writings about Cape Cod (with refreshments), rangers will lead walks through some of the Cape's varied landscapes, and the Highland Light Scottish Pipe Band will perform at a wreath-laying ceremony at Highland Light (cake will be served). There's much, much more. For a full schedule, see the Cape Cod National Seashore web site.
