Help plant young clams in Quincy on August 17th

Of the activities we run at Mass Oyster, two types are the most popular. The fun food-oyster events such as our upcoming oyster festival at Mayflower Brewery on September 15th is one. The second type is activities that offer people the opportunity to get visit our coastline and get out on the water. Children particularly enjoy exploring our beaches and coast. To that end we are always seeking hands-on opportunities.

The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries have provided a great one and we are working with an affiliate, Massachusetts Baykeeper to make this happen.

Join Mass Oyster, MassBaykeeper and the DMF in planting young clams at Quincy’s Orchard Beach. All ages can participate.

We will meet on Saturday July 17th at 12:00 noon.

It will be messy- Wear old sneakers or boots and old clothes.

Please bring clam forks or heavy rakes if you have them.

To reserve a spot please email info@massbaykeeper.org
