We are open to everyone and all are welcome to come lend a hand. Look at our online calendar for event dates that are convenient for you. See you there :)

Mission Statement

Our mission is to involve and educate the public about the estuary’s water quality and the importance of shellfish. We believe that by involving the public in the care, feeding, and life cycles of the shellfish they will better understand what an integral role shellfish have in our lives.

2015 Annual Report

ReClam the Bay uses the hard clam and oyster as living representatives of the bay ecosystem that includes the coastal bay and its watersheds. We educate people about the requirements of shellfish that serve as watchdogs for good water quality. Finally we explain the impact of  people on these natural resources and that people must be stewards of the natural resources that we share.
