Posted by ecostinger on 31st Jan 2015
Cape Cod is a large peninsula extending 60 miles into the Atlantic ocean from the coast of Massachusetts. The beach contains cliffs, dunes, good swimming in summer with body-surfing and boogie-boarding.
The Marine and estuarine systems (where freshwater from rivers and streams flows into the ocean, mixing with the seawater) include beaches, sand spits, tidal flats, salt marshes, and soft-bottom benthos. Freshwater ecosystems include kettle ponds, vernal pools, sphagnum bogs, and swamps. Terrestrial systems include pitch pine and scrub oak forests, heath lands, dunes, and sand plain grasslands. Many of these habitats are globally uncommon and the species that occupy them are correspondingly rare.
Lighthouses, cultural landscapes, and wild cranberry bogs offer a glimpse of Cape Cod's past and continuing ways of life. Swimming beaches, walking and biking trails today's visitors attraction and this can be found in the Cape Code.
