Discover Pirate's Cove

teaching kids about cape cod waterways


Barnstable Clean Water Coalition

Explore the natural treasure troves of Pirate’s Cove on Sampson’s Island. All ages are welcome to join our Summer Rangers for an hour of fun and interactive activities along the shoreline. Learn about the intertidal zone and its inhabitants from horseshoe crabs to shorebirds, and how we as citizen scientists can help protect our local waters. Meet our Summer Rangers at the entrance to Pirate’s Cove on the bayside of Sampsons’s Island in Cotuit Bay on the days and times listed for the program in the Calendar of Events.
