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.
Family Fridays are recommended for families with elementary school-aged children. We encourage you to attend all three programs, but it isn’t required.
- Make Your Own Fishing Pole (Oct. 13): This week, we’ll learn to make fishing poles! Use a stick and fishing string to create a fishing pole, and then try your hand at fishing in the Weweantic River at Horseshoe Mill in Wareham. Please wear boots or shoes with good traction that can get wet.
- Marsh Madness (Oct. 20): Explore the unique plants and animals that live near a salt marsh at the Lyman Reserve. Prepare to get muddy as you play games to help you get to know this important habitat!
- Orienteering (Oct. 27): Learn how to use a compass and navigate the trails through the woods at Minot Forest. In addition to practicing your orienteering skills, you’ll also identify the forest’s tree species by playing a fun game called “Meet a Tree”!
