Each year Wellfleet Bay has organized a full day conference featuring presenters from environmental organizations across Cape Cod speaking on a diversity of natural history topics. This conference continues to be an engaging, exciting, and fun way to learn about local research projects, conservation efforts, and local environmental organizations.

Learn about recent scientific research and other natural history topics, including:

  • A Three-Year Study of Bats on the Upper Cape
