Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition to learn to harvest your own quahogs in Clarks Cove in New Bedford. Coalition educators will teach you the basics of local quahogging – what you need, how to do it, and where to go. This will be a fun and educational event for the whole family.

We will provide rakes, peck baskets, and some waders for you to use. If you have your own rake, waders, or other quahogging equipment, please feel free to bring it. We suggest you wear clothing and shoes that can get wet and sandy, as we will be wading into the water up to our waists. Additionally, unless you have a shellfish permit for the city of New Bedford, this is a catch-and-release event.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the New Bedford Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

This program is part of a series of Learn to Quahog programs offered throughout Buzzards Bay this summer. Join us for this event in New Bedford or for Learn to Quahog: Mattapoisett on Saturday, August 27.
