Thanks to everyone who participated in our first Clamming 101 class on July 23rd at Point Judith Pond!

Pictures from the event are up on the Rhode Island Sea Grant Facebook Page. Check them out! For more images, visit our SMP Flickr Album, or see the Providence Journal’s photo gallery from photographer Frieda Squires.

Following the first class, our very own Azure Cygler went on the Rhode Show to talk about Clamming 101 and the Shellfish Management Plan. You can watch the interview on the WPRI website here.

Our next two events are scheduled for August 16th, and August 22nd. Unfortunately, both have filled up, but stay tuned–we’ll host one more shore-digging clamming class in September, and a tour of the Matunuck Oyster Farm is coming up soon.
