Rescue of the Bounty 7-17-2015.  The tall ship featured in the 1962 classic movie, Mutiny on the Bounty, sailed into Hurricane Sandy and overturned in 30 foot seas 90 miles off North Carolina, prompting one of the most massive rescues in Coast Guard History.  The Eastham Public Library welcomes author, Michael Tougias to discuss his book, Rescue of the Bounty.

Piping Plovers: Perilous Journey 7-8-2015.  Coming home to nest or rest during migration on sandy beaches is far riskier than in Thoreau's day when the piping plover was the most memorable sound of the Outer Cape. Please join us as the National Seashore's top shorebird expert, Mary Hake, explains the important role seashore beaches play in the life cycle of threatened shorebirds such as the piping plover, least tern, American oystercatcher and red knot, and what we are doing to help them survive on the edges of our world.

These and other videos from the Town of Eastham are on Vimeo  Thank you Mike Caliri, Video Services Coordinator, for making this possible!
