Central Oregon Coast: Lincoln City Crabbing, Clamming Clinics All Summer
(Lincoln City, Oregon) - From June through September the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau is offering free crabbing and clamming clinics led by central Oregon coast expert Bill Lackner. The clinics provide participants with information and hands-on experience regarding regulations, harvesting methods, identification, and cleaning and cooking techniques.
The clamming clinics start off with a presentation at the Driftwood Public Library, followed by a hands-on group clam digging excursion during low tide on the Siletz Bay in the historic Taft District of Lincoln City.
