Sponsored by Harwich Conservation Trust & Eastham Conservation Foundation, join this interpretive guided walk with historian and author Don Wilding. Travel across more than three centuries to hear about historic shipwrecks and rescues, ranging from the wreck of the Sparrow Hawk on Nauset Beach in 1626 to the Eldia in 1984.

Wilding, author of four books about Cape Cod history, including his newest release, “Cape Cod and The Portland Gale of 1898,” and 2021’s “Shipwrecks of Cape Cod: Stories of Tragedy & Triumph,” will also explore some of the dramatic weather events from the “Blizzard of ’78,” and “The Perfect Storm,” and their effects on the shifting sands of the Outer Beach.
