The Clam Trail

No matter what the weather; hot, cool, cloudy or windy …  it’s always a GREAT time on the Clam Trail!

The clam trail is a fun and educational activity to help young and old to understand Barnegat Bay and how they can enjoy and improve it. People who follow the trail will find “clam clews” and “water wisdom” about shellfish, and how they improve the bay. Kids and adults will learn what everybody or  anybody, can do to help the clams help the bay. The entire clam trail is divided into sub-trails: LBI South, LBI North, Waretown and North,  Manahawkin and South. You can decide on the part of the trail that is of most interest to you for a day, week or the entire summer.

Explore the Clam Trail as often as you like. The goal is to record the information found on the Fact plaques into the Explorer Log at each location along the Clam Trail. And while you’re there, be sure to “check-in” at the clam’s page on Facebook and upload a Clam “Selfie.”

Remember, exploring is not always easy! Some addresses are general and the Fact Plaque may require some search. There are also new locations popping up along the trail. Check back here from time to time to see the new locations.
