We see that we in Falmouth are on the traditional homeland of the Wampanoag people who live and continue to thrive here after thousands of years of residence. We also acknowledge the painful history of Colonization that has enacted forced assimilation, slavery, genocide, and efforts by many to eliminate the Wampanoag people along with their culture. We respect and honor the indigenous people still connected to this land and are willing to learn from the Wampanoag way of life. We recognize that these words are not enough and need to be followed with action steps.

About Woods Hole
Woods Hole, a village in the Town of Falmouth on the southwestern corner of Cape Cod, is a world-famous hub of oceanographic research. It’s home to the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) NOAA’s National Marine Fisheries Service, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the Woodwell Climate Institute.
Together, these institutions occupy some 170 buildings, operate a dozen research vessels and collecting boats, employ more than 1,500 year-round people, and offer instruction to approximately 500 students.
Dedicated visitor parking spots are available in front of the Madden Center, SEA’s main campus building located at the top of the driveway. Overflow parking is available in the dirt lot to the right of the Madden Center. On program arrival days, students and families are welcome to park alongside the driveway to assist with cottage move-in.
