Buzzards Bay Coalition to Host ‘Learn How to Quahog’ Event


ONSET – Residents and visitors on the Cape who have always wanted to learn how to quahog will have an opportunity later this month.     

The Buzzards Bay Coalition, the Wareham Land Trust and the town of Wareham will host a free bay adventure workshop at Burgess Point in Onset on Sunday, September 24 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

Attendees will learn the basics of digging for hard clams, or quahogs, including what tools are needed, how to dig and where to look.

Participants will travel by boat from Onset Pier to Burgess Point for the fun and educational activity for the whole family.

The coalition will provide all necessary equipment, including rakes, peck baskets, gauges and waders, but participants may bring their own.

Attendees with a Wareham shellfishing permit will be allowed to keep the quahogs they catch. The event will be catch-and-release for those without a permit.

Participants can expect to get wet and muddy and should dress accordingly.
