Do you know where our shellfish come from? This program is for families to learn how to shellfish and to explore an excellent spot for it. The OBC staff will lead a group, walking beautiful Onset Beach shoreline to Shell Point, over to the shellfishing beds, to scratch for quahogs. Additionally, if you would rather not walk, you could park at Shell Point and meet us there in the parking lot.This program will be catch and release, unless an adult has a Wareham shell fishing license. Information will also be provided on how to get your shellfishing license.
Waders will be provided but feel free to bring your own. Please have the kids wear boots as some waders may be too big for them. Rakes and baskets will be provided.
This program is part of “Wild for Wareham,” a collaboration by the Wareham Land Trust, Mass Audubon, and Buzzards Bay Coalition’s Onset Bay Center for a full week of outdoor activities that highlight all that Wareham has to offer, during school vacation (April 17 – 24, 2021).

When you arrive, you will check-in with a staff member by the flagpole. We ask that all participants please wear a mask and maintain at least 6 feet of distance.
