Cape Cod National Seashore Hosts Receptions for New Superintendent

Brian Carlstrom, new CCNS Supervisor

EASTHAM – The Cape Cod National Seashore held a public reception last week and is holding another next month to welcome new superintendent Brian Carlstrom to the national seashore.

The event will be held on May 8th from 5-7pm at the Province Lands Visitor Center in Provincetown.

A reception at the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham was held last week.

Carlstrom replaces George Price, who retired in 2017 following twelve years as superintendent at Cape Cod during his 44-year career with the National Park Service.

“There’s a lot of things happening within the Seashore that George had a great start on, he accomplished a great deal and I look forward to carrying forward many of those projects and discovering and developing new ones,” said Carlstrom. “I’m listening to all of you to find out where we want to take this place in the next few years and on into the future.”

The Provincetown reception will also showcase the recently completed interior renovation of the visitor center, including new exhibits and audio visual system.

Celebratory remarks will be made at 5:30. Seashore staff will also provide a short presentation on coastal change occurring at Herring Cove Beach.

The event is free and sponsored by Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Most recently, Superintendent Carlstrom served in the National Park Service Washington Office as Deputy Associate Director, Natural Resource Stewardship and Science.

During his remarks at last week’s reception, Carlstrom marveled at how unique the Seashore is.

“It was a grand experiment back in 1961,” said Carlstrom. “A park like this hadn’t been created until that time and it has withstood the test of time and has continued to thrive.”

During his 30-year National Park Service career he has served as a park ranger, recreation planner, natural resource specialist, legislative affairs specialist, and superintendent.
