- Get Clamming! The Shellfish Commission’s Clam Clinic, where locals have the opportunity to learn how to clam from the pros and try themselves, will be held, rain or shine, on June 20th at Sasco Beach. Families and kids are encouraged to participate in this hands-on community event. We look forward to sharing additional details with you very soon. Please keep an eye out for more information on Facebook as well.
- Lend a Hand! If you have an interest in assisting with projects or events or are willing to lend your equipment on occasion, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We are actively looking for volunteers for the upcoming Clam Clinic. As a volunteer group, we rely on other shellfish-minded individuals to help out from time-to-time so thank you in advance!
- School Programs – Shellfish Commission volunteers will be visiting with Fairfield Warde High School and Fairfield Ludlowe High School classes this Thursday morning, May 21st at Sasco Beach to provide clamming instruction and an opportunity to get the students in the water and dig for themselves! The Commission looks forward to growing the interest of our town’s youth in the enjoyment, tradition and an environmental awareness recreational shellfishing provides.
