Filed Under: More News, Non Profit News

The Cape and Islands RSVP program is once again offering a free Winter Education Series for their volunteers and the general public.

The series consists of one presentation per month, January through March, as well as a film that focuses on an environmental topic important to Cape Cod and the Islands.  The Winter Education Series is a virtual event due to COVID-19 health concerns.

The featured film is “Spinnaker the Film,” the story of Spinnaker the humpback whale from birth through death, which will be shown Wednesday, Jan. 12, at 10 a.m.

A presentation on Marine Animal Entanglement by the Center for Coastal Studies will be featured as the Wednesday, Jan. 19, program, at 10 a.m. This presentation will further explain the life of Spinnaker, as well as answer any marine wildlife questions.

To register as a participant, call Alberto Martinelli at 508-394-4630, ext. 524, or email
