National Seashore Holding Last-Minute Cranberry Picking in Truro

Truro – The Cape Cod National Seashore is inviting area residents next week for a pre-Thanksgiving exercise and last-minute cranberry picking.

Join Cape Cod National Seashore Ranger Dani Cessna on Tuesday, November 20 at 2:00 p.m. in Truro for the fun.  

The walk, which meets at the parking lot at the end of High Head Road, will traverse high dunes with spectacular views of East Harbor before descending into wild cranberry bogs.

Learn about parabolic dune formation and the natural and cultural history of cranberries on Cape Cod. Bring water, a container or bag if you’d like to pick cranberries, and dress in layers for wind.

The National Seashore permits the collection of up to one gallon of cranberries per person per day for personal consumption.
