    Mass Audubon has completed the purchase of the 110-acre Sacred Hearts property in Wareham, six months after raising $2.6 million in a mere 27 days from generous donors. This acquisition will ensure that the spectacular coastscape along Buzzards Bay will be permanently protected from private development.

    The property formally becomes part of Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, which now includes more than 200 acres of saltmarsh and uplands, including a mile of coastline, in one of the most beautiful and ecologically vibrant areas of the South Coast.
