Spend winter vacation discovering the outdoors with your kids during Winter Vacation Family Explorations, a series of three free outings in Acushnet and Mattapoisett during winter vacation week hosted by the Buzzards Bay Coalition. Through fun games and hands-on activities, your whole family will learn about winter animals, plants and habitats in the Buzzards Bay region.
On Tuesday, December 26, take a short hike and learn how to write poetry inspired by the natural scenery at The Sawmill (32 Mill Road, Acushnet). On Wednesday, December 27, learn the basics of orienteering through a fun series of challenges at The Bogs (138 Acushnet Road, Mattapoisett). And on Thursday, December 28, conduct cool science experiments with water at The Sawmill. All three programs run from 1:00 to 2:30 pm.
These programs are recommended for families with elementary school-aged children. Families are encouraged to attend all three programs, but it isn’t required.
Registration is required for all programs. To RSVP, visit www.savebuzzardsbay.org/events or contact the Buzzards Bay Coalition at 508-999-6363 ext. 219.
