Learn how to harvest your own quahogs from Buzzards Bay with the Buzzards Bay Coalition at Shining Tides Beach in Mattapoisett. 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. This is a catch-and-release event unless you have a Mattapoisett shellfish permit.
