Beach Jobs! Managing Tasty Clams

How do the tribes, research scientists and resource managers conduct shellfish population surveys? Why are they important and who is involved? Turn the classroom into a tideland as we act out the players, identify shellfish species, survey the beach, crunch population numbers, and divvy up our tasty harvestable catch (Swedish Fish).

60 minutes in the classroom or as a field trip.

Designed for grades 6-12.
