# OF ATTENDEES:
Washington’s coastal waters are full of life and waiting for discovery! Join us for an active day on the beach harvesting Manila clams and Pacific oysters.
Participants will learn about bivalves (mollusks with hinged shells), where they live, why they are important for maintaining healthy coastal ecosystems, how to harvest them responsibly, and how to shuck those oysters correctly!
WDFW Puget Sound Intertidal Bivalve Manager – Clamzilla – will provide expert instruction on harvesting techniques, answer all your coastal questions, and share her most favorite recipes.
Information on needed equipment and harvesting licenses will be available the coming months.
The registration fee includes all instruction, an oyster shucking knife, refreshments, and WOW swag.
We can learn so much from nature with the right teachers sharing their knowledge. Thanks to the WOW Instructors for sharing their wealth of experience and know-how.
I think I can keep myself safe and not need to depend on my husband’s outdoor and safety knowledge now. Thank you WOW Instructors for building me up as an outdoors woman!
All the instructors were so engaging and hospitable, easy to talk to and very welcoming.
Take the challenge – become a Washington Outdoor Woman!
