Grant Program Brings Chelsea Children To National Seashore

National SeashoreWELLFLEET – A grant program allowing children from urban environments to enjoy our national parks is supporting trips to the Cape Cod National Seashore this year.

The Ticket to Ride program is bringing children from the Boys and Girls club branch in Chelsea to explore the Seashore and Outer Cape.

A group of children from the club came to Cape Cod on July 14. The kids participated in a scavenger hunt in Provincetown and biked out to Herring Cove Beach. All but one of the children had never been to the Seashore. More visits are planned, with children getting to camp, fish, kayak, and bike at the Seashore.

Ticket to Ride helps connect children with national parks across the country by providing access to transportation to the parks. The program is funding the ferry trips from Boston to Provincetown for the Boys and Girls club.
