The Waquoit Bay Reserve comprises approximately 2800 acres of land and water. In addition to the Headquarters facility, South Cape Beach, and Washburn Island, which were all acquired at the outset, other lands have been added to the Reserve as they have become available. These acquisitions were chosen because they represented significant habitat value. SeeLand Acquisition. For more information on visiting these parcels, click here.
