Province Lands Visitor Center
$25,000 provided funds to keep Province Lands Visitor Center open during the 2013 Federal budget sequestration, maintaining levels of service for interpretive programs
In 2013 Cape Cod National Seashore was forced to incorporate a $376,000 reduction to its annual budget due to federal budget turmoil and the resulting “sequestration.” The cuts included significant cuts to visitor services, biological technicians to monitor critical resources, and reduced custodial services. Fortunately, a substantial donation from the Friends allowed the Province Lands Visitor Center - originally scheduled for complete closure under sequester cuts - to open for a shortened season from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
