Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 11AM - 12PM

Jacob Sears Memorial Library, 23 Center Street, East Dennis

Description: Shellfish aquaculture has grown dramatically in recent years and has economic and potentially ecological importance to Cape Cod. Regional growing practices are important to commercial shellfish farms and municipal efforts to restore or enhance natural populations of shellfish. Efforts to propagate shellfish also provide increased volunteer opportunities.
