Wareham, MA 02538
Learn how to dig your own quahogs (hard clams) from Buzzards Bay! During this free event at Wickets Island in Onset with the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the Wareham Department of Natural Resources, we’ll teach you the basics of local quahogging: what you need, how to do it, and where to go. Participants will travel on a boat from Onset Pier to Wickets Island. Taking place as part of the Wareham Oyster Festival, this event will be fun and educational for the whole family.
Please dress to get wet and muddy. If you have a Wareham shellfishing permit, you will be allowed to keep the quahogs you catch; otherwise, this will be a catch-and-release event. The Coalition will provide all necessary equipment (rakes, peck baskets, gauges, and waders) for you to use, but you are welcome to bring your own.
