Those who dig shellfish should go and check out ShellFest 2012 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 4 at Potlatch State Park in Mason County.

Activities include low-tide walks guided by local experts; maritime music by Hank Cramer and Mary Garvey; touch tanks; ice tables; children’s activities; craft booths; videos; special presentation featuring Native American culture presentation by the Skokomish Tribe and the storytelling by Delbert Miller of the Skokomish Tribe; and lunch provided by Washington’s shellfish growers.

The lunch is free with donations going to benefit the Washington State Parks Foundation. A Discover Pass is required for vehicle access to the event.

The new event is part of Governor Chris Gregoire’s Washington Shellfish Initiative aimed at restoring and protecting shellfish beds in Puget Sound.
