Wild for Wareham! A Day of Celebrating Our Town’s Nature: Saturday May 7th

May 1, 2022

On Saturday, May 7, the Wareham Land Trust, Mass Audubon, the Wildlands Trust, and Buzzards Bay Coalition’s Onset Bay Center will be hosting a variety of outdoor programs for kids and adults at locations across town.

All the events are free, but space is limited. Half of the tickets will be available in advance online and the rest will be available in person on a first-come, first-served basis.
Participation in any event — or visiting tabling organizations at the Onset Bay Center — will enter attendees into a raffle for one of three adventure packs. The prizes include a private kayak tour with Buzzards Bay Coalition staff, gift memberships for Mass Audubon and the Wareham Land Trust, a gift certificate to the Wildlands Trust online store.
