Discover the Outdoors in Wareham on Free Family Friday Explorations

Three free outings hosted by Buzzards Bay Coalition

Get your whole family to explore the outdoors during Family Friday Explorations, a series of three free outings in October hosted by the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the Wareham Land Trust. Through fun games and hands-on activities, your family will learn about the Buzzards Bay region’s animals, plants, and habitats.

On Oct. 13, learn how to Make Your Own Fishing Pole and then try your hand at fishing in the Weweantic River at Horseshoe Mill (end of Station Street, Wareham). On Oct. 20, explore the unique plants and animals that live near a salt marsh during Marsh Madness at the Lyman Reserve (110 Red Brook Rd., Plymouth). And on Oct. 27, learn how to use a compass and navigate the trails through the woods during Orienteering at Minot Forest (63 Minot Ave., Wareham). All programs run from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m.

Family Fridays are recommended for families with elementary school-aged children. We encourage you to attend all three programs, but it isn’t required.

Registration is required for each program. To RSVP, visit or contact the Buzzards Bay Coalition at (508) 999-6363 ext. 219 or [email protected].
