PROVINCETOWN – The Center for Coastal Studies has announced a series of celebrations in honor of its 40th year of conducting research, performing marine animal rescue operations, and offering education programs on Cape Cod Bay and beyond.

On June 11th, a Gala Event will be held at Provincetown Town Hall to recognize long-time members, friends and supporters of the Center.

The event will also honor two of the co-founders, Graham Giese and Charles “Stormy” Mayo, who, along with Barbara Mayo, nurtured the Center for Coastal Studies from a mom-and-pop  operation to a 21st-century lab, education and rescue organization.

Three Sunset Whale Watch cruises with Provincetown’s own Dolphin Fleet will be held on July 16, July 30, and August 20.

Each will feature the company of Center for Coastal Studies scientists and staff, interpretation by a Center naturalist and a front-row seat from Long Point to Stellwagen Bank to see whales, dolphins, sea birds, seals, and sunsets.

On July 29th, a Birthday Party will be held at the Bas Relief in Provincetown during the Center’s sixth annual Whale Week – a Celebration of the Sea, which coincides with Family Week.

The public will be invited to Sink a Center Scientist in a dunk tank, participate in the Whale Olympics, and help blow out the 40 candles on the cake.

As a 40-year-old member-based organization, the Center is seeking support from the Cape Cod community to help celebrate its legacy and launch the next forty years.

Fans of the Center with memories, paraphernalia or volunteer enthusiasm to share at any of the events are asked to contact the center.
