There are just a few days remaining until the Town of Greenwich Shellfish Commission “Experience the Sound 2015” at Greenwich Point Park. The event is on Sunday, June 21 from 1:00pm til 4:30pm. There is no fee to participate.
This event is a mix of party and education. There is free raw bar of shellfish, harvested from local Greenwich shellfish beds provided by Atlantic Clam Farms and Hemlock Oysters! While you’re there, you can learn about sailing, crew and scuba opportunities from the experts. Trout Unlimited will demonstrate fly-fishing and the Sportsman’s Den will advise where to fish in Greenwich waters.
The Greenwich Shellfish Commission will explain where to find and how to collect clams and oysters in local waters.
Want a different angle altogether? The Greenwich Historical Society will lead a Guided Historical Cycling Tour of Greenwich Park. This year’s “History on Wheels” program will be linked to the celebration of Greenwich’s 375th birthday and will focus on key events in the history of the Point, including current initiatives by the Greenwich Point Conservancy to restore public buildings and native habitats.
This event is supported by The Greenwich Historical Society, The Greenwich Conservation Commission and coinciding with the Summer Season Opening of the Bruce Museum Seaside Center.
This great family event for all ages includes “Board a Boat” at the Old Greenwich Yacht Club. Also, the Soundwaters Schooner, The Greenwich Police Boat and Atlantic Clam Farms Shellfish Boat will be berthed at their docks.
