Clam Digging Experience for Adults: Sunday April 12 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Cost: $30 per person, maximum of 20 participants.

Curious and hungry foragers will be led in small groups on a foraging excursion, learning about ocean delicacies, Pacific oysters and Manila clams direct from their shells on the shellfish research farm of Vancouver Island University at Deep Bay. Foragers will learn about First Nations’ use of shellfish, Vancouver Island’s marine ecology, and species identification. Local experts will discuss where and how to forage for shellfish and other intertidal treats and how to make sure that your shellfish is safe to eat. Participants will also receive recipes for delicious ways to cook their ocean treasures. Participants must have their tidal waters sport fishing licence prior to arriving (https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/rec/licence-permis/application-eng.html).
