Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the New Bedford Parks, Recreation, & Beaches Department to learn to harvest your own quahogs at Fort Taber Park. 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 New Bedford shellfish permit.

Cost: Free
