We had an amazing time in the Quilcene Tidelands with our bivalve expert friends from the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife this past weekend! We learned a ton about Washington’s coastal water resources, shellfish health and safety, how to harvest clams and shuck oysters (don’t forget to leave your oyster shells behind for good habitat!), and even got to taste Clamzilla’s famous oyster recipe. Thanks to all our awesome participants for joining us for a day of fun in the muck!

The chance to bring enough food, gathered by my own hand, for two suppers… well, the mind blowing part kind of hit as I tasted my first of (6 total) oysters. I did this for myself…and I could do it again! 2019 Shellfish participant
