Voters in the town of Wareham, MA, have approved $400,000 in Community Preservation Act funds to preserve the centerpiece of Onset Bay: the wooded, 4.6-acre island called Wickets Island.

The funds will be used by the Buzzards Bay Coalition to purchase the island from its current owner and enhance its accessibility to the public. Wickets Island is currently accessible via small boat and kayak.
