Wild for Wareham
Celebrate spring and school vacation week with Mass Audubon, Wareham Land Trust, and Buzzards Bay Coalition's Onset Bay Center! These three organizations are joining forces to offer a full week of programs that will get you and your family outside and exploring Wareham's wild side.
Program highlights include a walking tour of Mass Audubon's new Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, a kayak tour on the Agawam River with Wareham Land Trust, and an introductory shellfishing program with the Onset Bay Center.
People who register for one or more events will receive a Wild For Wareham program passport that can be used to track the sessions you participate in and enter to win an outdoor exploration pack filled with provisions to explore even more!
