Come Razor Clamming with NAME!
Washington NAME will be heading out to the coast on Friday, April 10, 2020 for a weekend of festivities and marine biology.
We arise early Saturday, April 11, to hunt for the mighty Pacific Razor Clam, Siliqua patula. Joined by throngs of like-minded, bivalve-loving Homo sapiens, we use shovels and guns (clam guns, that is) to extract the beasties from their sandy homes before the tide and surf fill our rubber boots with icy saltwater.
The rest of the day is spent cleaning the clams, beachcombing for treasures and hanging with like-minded marine-loving folks. Then Saturday night, we feast on clams while we tell tales and sing songs of the glorious hunt. If the Homo sapiens haven’t been too greedy, we get to repeat the hunt Sunday morning before packing up and driving back to the safety of our (mostly) sand-free domiciles.
In addition, Friday night, April 10, there will be a FREE Razor Clam Biology and Ecology presentation by local tidepooling and beachcombing expert, Alan Rammer, at Beachwood Resort, 3009 WA-109, Copalis Beach, WA 98535.
For more info, please contact Woody Moses at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Hope to see you there!
