In 1999, WOW held a Spring Shellfish workshop on Hood Canal. With shellfish licenses and hopeful anticipation, women traveled to the tip of Toandos Peninsula to harvest oysters and dig clams. A long sunny day on the beach provided them the opportunity to shuck their oysters and learn some cooking tips.

At the end of the day, a seafood feast offered up fried oysters and a special WOW recipe for steamed clams. Participants took their limits home to delight their families with stories and seafood skills. Instructors Lisa Wood and Anita Cook, biologists with the Department of Fish and Wildlife, took everyone on an educational low tide beach walk to round off the day.
