Wickets Island, part of the developing Onset Bay Center, will be a place where people of all ages can swim, fish, paddle, dig for quahogs, walk, and picnic with their friends and family.
Because they aren’t lined at the bottom, these lagoons leak as much as 50,000 gallons of contaminated wastewater every day. The town must fix these leaking sewage lagoons and comply with state law.
When you stop to appreciate the view, remember that all of these ponds are somehow linked to Buzzards Bay: whether through streams, via groundwater, or simply as part of the web of life in our region.
Help the Buzzards Bay Coalition keep an eye on the health of the water in your community. Become a Baywatcher, and you can volunteer as a "citizen scientist" on the water this summer.
Sure, winter can be a bit chilly. But if you venture outdoors during our coldest months, you’ll find a vibrant variety of birds that visit Buzzards Bay.
The Coalition and the town of Wareham have received a $350,000 grant from the Seaport Economic Council to restore the historic Onset Bathhouse to serve as the headquarters for the Coalition’s developing Onset Bay Center.
