Wellfleet Bay provides peace and unmatched beauty on the hillsides and shoreline overlooking Wellfleet Harbor. Extensive trails bring you to a panoramic salt marsh, sandy barrier beach, and pine woodlands, each attracting a wide array of wildlife. The sanctuary features a universally accessible trail and an award-winning “green” nature center with numerous exhibits and aquariums.
Join us for a screening of Ocean Cities to find out what coastal cities and towns can do to confront the rising sea levels caused by climate change—and discover the mitigation projects some major cities have already implemented.
Any regular visitor to Wellfleet Bay has probably said "hello" to veteran front desk volunteer Shirley Weber. She's volunteered at the sanctuary for more than 20 years. "It's a chance to meet people from all over the world," she says.
