Shellfish and fish prints


Can you tell a bivalve from a mollusk? We’ll be taking a look at the upwellers on Island Wharf, learning about oysters and other shellfish with Marion’s Shellfish Warden, and hearing about the important role they play in the bay. We will also take a tour of some of the local aquaculture farms and visit Meadow Island with the Marion Harbormaster. Please bring a life-jacket.

We’ll also be making fish print t-shirts. Please bring a clean cotton t-shirt or cloth the day of the program. Meet at Harbormaster’s office, Island Wharf.


Grades 2 – 6
