Ever since, scientists have been trying to figure out why.

AmeriCorps volunteers have contributed countless hours to natural resource management and disaster preparedness in Barnstable County. During the recent storms, volunteers could be found manning the emergency shelters and stacking sand bags to protect against coastal flooding.
