As the summer winds down, hunting season will soon begin. If you choose to bring your dog on a trail, be sure they have the proper attire to stay safe too. Make sure that you and your dog wear blaze orange on the trails, especially during hunting season, to increase visibility.

In addition to outfitting your furry friend with blaze orange, we ask that you follow these few simple guidelines when walking your dog on our trails. Dogs must always be leashed and kept under control. While on the trail, please pick up pet waste and properly dispose of waste when leaving the property.

During this time of uncertainty, The Wareham Land Trust trails remain open. Please practice social distancing when on the trails and follow our guidelines. Hunting regulations and reporting may have changed due to COVID-19. Stay up to date with MassWildlife.

Note: If you plan on hunting this fall on one of The Wareham Land Trust’s properties or another property in town, be sure to check regulations and restrictions to ensure that hunting is permitted. Many WLT properties do NOT allow hunting. Please remember that hunting is prohibited on Sundays.

“Be safe, be seen.”
