Clam Workshop 2021

THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN POSTPONED due to the rise in the Delta variant of COVID-19. We hope to host it in-person this winter on a date to be determined (TBD). Please check back here for updates!

Scientists, natural resource managers, and others will discuss current knowledge and develop a list of management and research needs to promote clam restoration activities. The conclusions of the workshop will be synthesized into a white paper. There is no charge for the workshop, but space is limited and registration is required.
