ACONS Webinars

A Celebration of Nantucket Sound (ACONS) Webinar Series

ACONS is an educational webinar series designed to celebrate Nantucket Sound’s exceptional environment, robust history, and cultural importance to the Cape and Islands. These monthly webinars provide free, accessible, and fun learning opportunities for individuals and families in the safety of their own homes through Zoom. We hope that this series will culminate in a live celebration later this year.

Each webinar will feature a renowned expert in their field, presenting on one of the Sound’s unique values – and answering your questions in a live Q&A session to follow.
