Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition for Women in Waders, a series of three free adventures for women who love the outdoors. These fun outdoor exploration activities will keep you learning, laughing, and discovering new things about yourself and Buzzards Bay. We will explore ways to get up close and personal with nature in a safe and supportive all-female environment.

  • Crazy About Crabs (May 29): Beautiful savory swimmer – that’s the translation of the scientific name for the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus. You’ll learn about this beautiful but feisty crab as you try to lure a few to the shore. You’ll also master techniques for picking up an energetic crab without getting pinched! Wear clothes and shoes that can get wet and muddy.
  • Seeking Shellfish (June 5): Don a pair of waders and hop into the Bay! You’ll learn how to use a clam rake to dig for quahogs at low tide and try your hand at shucking a clam yourself. This will be a “dig and release” event.
  • Buggin’ Out (June 12)Love bugs? Hate bugs? Either way, you’ll be amazed at the diversity of life that exists at the edge of the Acushnet River at The Sawmill. We’ll put you in waders and send you out in search of aquatic macroinvertebrates (aka “big water bugs”). You’ll learn about the interesting adaptations of these unusual creatures, many of which you may have never seen before!
