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.

In 2020, we invite both women and girls to 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.

Grab your rubber boots, invite a daughter, granddaughter, niece or friend and sign up for an amazing experience! Adults may bring more than one girl.

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.

Take the challenge – become a Washington Outdoor Woman!
