How do you study the diet and eating habits of seals? As they hunt in the open water, it’s almost impossible to see what they’re putting into their mouths. 

But there is another way.

We’ve had a relatively mild winter, but there are still a few events this weekend geared toward ignoring the cold weather.

Center for Coastal Studies

The new movie "The Finest Hours" is the tale of the 1952 sinking of the SS Pendleton in a storm off Cape Cod, and the daring rescue of its crew by the members of the Chatham Coast Guard Station. Now the Center for Coastal Studies, in Provincetown, has done some extensive underwater mapping of the wreckage of the Pendleton.

Some unusual things are happening in the Cape Cod theater world this weekend—two related to opera, and one big challenge for writers, actors and directors.

On Thanksgiving Day in 1984, David Mattila and Charles "Stormy" Mayo set out from Provincetown to free an entangled whale. It was their first attempt, and they had little to guide them.

Since that day they have been at the center of creating protocols and best practices for whale entanglement response.

Chatham Chamber of Commerce

Find out how meals were prepared in the 18th and early 19th century on Saturday, when the Caleb Nickerson House, in Chatham, opens its unusual beehive oven for baking. You can even bring a  prepared recipe to bake.

Center for Coastal Studies

January marks the time of year when North Atlantic Right whales typically begin to show up in Cape Cod Bay. This year has been no exception, with a pair of whales being sighted on January 7.

Cotuit Center for the Arts

The work of dozens of Cape artists will be on display in the mid-Cape area at two art exhibits that open this weekend, one at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in Yarmouth, and the other at the Cotuit Center for the Arts.
