Event Description:

Driftwood Public Library will be hosting the 8th year of its “Coastal Encounters” series of lectures on Tuesday evenings in May.  Each year the library invites a group of speakers and experts to present programs on their areas of interest.  These presentations share a focus on coastal living, and presenters talk on a range of subjects from local history to activities both residents and visitors can enjoy on the coast.

Bill Lackner returns with a presentation on crabbing. A crabbing field trip will take place on Wednesday, May 29th at 9:00 a.m. along the North Shore of Siletz Bay.

Please note that while all four programs at the library are free, those interested in taking part in Bill’s clamming or crabbing field trips must purchase an “Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife Shellfish Harvester’s License” for each member of the family who wishes to participate prior to the trips. Those taking part in either field trip should also wear layered clothing, sturdy shoes (no sandals or flip-flops, please) and be prepared for rain with appropriate gear.  Those wishing to take part in the crabbing field trip should additionally bring a crab trap (Bill suggests using the Crab Max folding crab traps that sell for $27.00 each). Each crabber over the age of 14 will also need a pair of gloves, a crab measure, a 5-gallon bucket and a large package of chicken legs for bait.
