This is a celebratory annual meeting. The National Park system is having it's 100th anniversary this month, FHR and the Herring River Restoration Committee (HRRC) are moving from environmental preparation to permitting
preparation, and a new book has been published.
* The Flyover Video will be shown and narrated in order to help you follow the path of the drone over all sections of the estuary. This is a remarkable view from the air. You will know some sections and others will be new to you as they are so inaccessible because of the growth of woodland on much that was formerly marsh.
* When the boundaries of the CCNS were drawn they included land that extends from the Atlantic coastline, west to Cape Cod Bay, including most of the Herring River Estuary. The rest of the CCNS land is only on the Atlantic side of the Cape.
*In addition, Don Palladino will give an update on the the key milestones and major events that have led to the conclusion of the environmental work and the beginning of the permitting process. Permitting is expected to take about 18 months to complete.
*Authors of the new book "Tidal Waters: A History of Wellfleet's Herring River" will give an introduction to their work and have a book signing and sale. Authors are Barbara Brennessel, Alice Iacuessa, and John Portnoy.
