Mattapoisett, MA 02739
Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition at Shining Tides Beach to learn to harvest your own quahogs. 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 Town of Mattapoisett, this is a catch-and-release event.
This program is part of a series of Learn to Quahog programs offered throughout Buzzards Bay this summer. Join us for this event in Mattapoisett or for Learn to Quahog: New Bedford on Saturday, August 13.
