‘First People of the Province Lands’ Walk Being Held in June

PROVINCETOWN – With the spring in full bloom, the Harwich Conservation Trust (HCT) and the Provincetown Conservation Trust (PCT) have collaborated to host a walk through the Province Lands.  

Join 12th generation Cape Codder Todd Kelley and native Wampanoag/Nipmuc Marcus Hendricks for the walk, which will focus on the nature of life of the Province Lands.

Explore the time period from late-woodland – circa 600 A.D. to 1,200 A.D. to Native Americans’ first contact with Europeans. Consider life according to the seasons at a place where the elements had direct bearing on survival. Witness the natural richness and stark harshness of the area and the impacts of social change evidenced in the land itself.

The 1.5 mile walk culminates with the Old Colony Railroad, opened in 1873, creating land access to Provincetown and resulting in changes to the community.

Advanced registration for the walk is required with admission at $20 per person.

The walk is scheduled to take place from 9:00 a.m. through 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 1 at the Province Lands in Provincetown. A rain date has been set for Sunday, June 2.
