Foraged Foods: Quahogs

May 7, 2019

Event has passed

Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition and New Bedford’s Parks, Recreation, and Beaches Department to learn how to harvest your own quahogs. We will teach you the basics of local quahogging – what you need, how to do it, and where to go. In addition, we will supply you with some recipe suggestions and even a taste of some of our favorite ways to prepare clams!

This will be a fun event for the whole family!

We will provide rakes, peck baskets, and some waders for you to use. If you have your own rake, waders, or other quahogging equipment, please feel free to bring it. We suggest you wear clothing and shoes that can get wet and sandy, as we will be wading into the water up to our waists. Additionally, unless you have a shellfish permit for the City of New Bedford and the shellfish bed is open, this is a catch-and-release event.
