Annual Oyster Talk and Tasting 2019

Woods Hole Historical Museum will hold its
Annual Oyster Tasting Summer Fundraiser
on Friday, August 23, from 5 to 7 PM
on the museum grounds at 579 Woods Hole Road.

The first part of the evening will feature a talk by local oyster growers Pete Chase, Mary Murphy, and Eric Matzen of Sippewissett Shellfish Cooperative. They will explain how oysters are grown in this area and the results from the past year as well as answer questions from the crowd.

Pete could be considered one of the pioneers of modern oyster aquaculture in Falmouth, as he established his oyster growing operation in Gansett Cove. Now there are a host of people growing oysters in Falmouth, stretching from Waquoit to Megansett.

This event is your chance to learn about, and taste local oysters while you support your favorite Woods Hole museum!

$40 for members and $50 for non-members.
