On October 8 at 3 p.m., the public is invited to join Ada Limón for the National Parks Service “Poetry in Parks” unveiling. This event is open to the public.

U.S. Poet Laureate Ada Limón will unveil a picnic table with an overlay featuring the poem “Ecology” by June Jordan.

Seven national parks, including Cape Cod National Seashore, were selected by Limón to be part of her signature project “You are Here: Poetry in Parks.” The initiative is a partnership with the Library of Congress, the National Park Service, and the Poetry Society of America that features site-specific poetry installations in the parks. Each one will transform a picnic table into a work of public art by featuring a historic American poem that relates to the park in a meaningful way.
