Clams 101 with Jim O'Connell


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Local shellfisherman Jim O’Connell will take students on a unique tour of his shellfishing grant on the flats of Wellfleet to discover the art of Cape Cod clamming. Jim will present on all things clams, including history, anatomy, and the clamming trade on Cape Cod. Students will walk away with a newfound appreciation for these small creatures and for how they arrive on the dinner plate. Students can cap off their day on the flats by enrolling at a discount in a culinary workshop led by Lorraine Piver in the kitchen at Castle Hill to make a delicious clam-filled meal.
