From grounded boats, to baby raccoons to shellfish management...

From the Wareham Department of Natural Resources:

Today was a busy day for Wareham DNR! Here are some highlights of the day. The Department was notified by Wareham Police about a vessel that had a soft grounding on the beach on Stony Point Dike. The vessel was grounded due to the tide going out very quickly! The hull was not damaged, and with the help of some folks around, the vessel was able to be pushed back into the water. Thank you for those who helped.

Shortly after, Officer Kimball was called to a home in West Wareham for a report of juvenile raccoons. With the advice of The Training Tree and Cape Wildlife Center, Officer Kimball had constructed an area in the wooded part of the yard where the mother raccoon will hopefully retreive them. We will continue to monitor them in the coming days.

Stay tuned for the outcome of these future dumpster divers!

In other news, Officer’s from the Department worked on our shellfish propagation program in Onset and we will post updates to that as well shortly!
