Description: Clam digging is as Rhode Island as it gets – join us for a fun and informative clamming lesson and learn from the pros! This session is part of the Rhode Island Shellfish Management Plan (SMP) project, an effort to bring together stakeholder groups — from government, to industry, to community organizations — to collectively plan how Rhode Island can best manage its shellfish resources so they can serve the needs of many over the years to come.

We’ll have rakes, shovels and buckets for borrowing. Following the class, refreshments will be served. Event is limited to 20 participants all over age 18.
