You and your kids can discover the outdoors at Family Friday Explorations, a series of three free outings on Friday evenings in October hosted by the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the Wareham Land Trust. Through fun games and hands-on activities, your whole family will learn about animals, plants, and habitats in the Buzzards Bay region.

Family Friday Explorations is recommended for families with elementary school-aged children. We encourage you to attend all three programs, but it’s not required.

  • Seining the Shore (Oct. 7): Explore crabs, fish, and other species that live along the shoreline at Shining Tides Beach in Mattapoisett. You’ll learn how to pull a seine net and take a close look at the small critters you catch!
  • Marsh Exploration (Oct. 14): Explore the unique plants and animals that live in a salt marsh at The Trustees’ Lyman Reserve in Bourne. Prepare to get muddy as you play games and get to know this important habitat up close and personal!
  • Orienteering (Oct. 21): Learn how to use a compass and navigate the trails through the woods at William Minot Forest in Wareham. 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”!
