This summer visitors to Bismore Park Welcome Center at Hyannis Harbor, can ‘Discover Barnstable’ with a new outreach program this July and August. This outreach program is designed to share with residents and visitors the wide range of resources the Town of Barnstable provides year round. Bismore Park Welcome Center is located at 180 Ocean Street, Hyannis. The programs will take place near the Hyannis HyArts Artist Shanties in the grassy area. The artist shanties are open May through October each year, and showcase local artists who work and sell their wares right from their ‘seaside’ studios.
Programs are each week, free of charge, handicapped accessible and are scheduled for Mondays, 10:30 AM to 11:30 AMand Thursdays, 4:30 PM-5:30 PM, beginning July 10th through August 24th, 2017. In addition, the Barnstable County Coastal Explorer Van joins the program for an extended day visit on July 13th and August 7th.
The free program includes: activities about the natural wildlife in town where visitors will have time to hold stuffed skunks, owls and hawks, see live turtles and hear about the different species; step into a 31-foot custom built motorcoach to learn about Cape Cod’s coastal environment; turn a print of cyanobacteria into bracelets and bookmarks and identify which blooms are friends and foe; practice putting with a golf pro; stay for library story time and crafts; and hula hoop for fun and fitness!
