Sponsored by the local land trusts in Harwich, Chatham, and Orleans as well as the Native Land Conservancy, join 12th generation Cape Codder Todd Kelley and native Nipmuck/Wampanoag Marcus Hendricks for a fascinating series of interpretive walks describing the natural landscapes of three specific locations within the centuries old Monomoyick Territory. Explore the historic stories that transpired on each of these lands at the time of European first contact. Consider the lives of the First People and how dramatically their lives and the land itself were influenced and altered during this brief window of time in the seventeenth century.  The cost is $45.00 for the three walk series (if you attend all three walks or just one, it’s $45.00). Join us to explore the historic native Monomoyick Territory!
