Fill in your holes after digging clams to help shellfish survive and prevent a tripping hazard for other people on the beach.
Don't dig alone. Always have a buddy or go in groups and let others know when and where you are going.
Always bring a light (headlamp, flashlight, or lantern) when digging at night.
Be wise about the ocean. Always face the ocean when digging clams and be aware of your surroundings.
Protect our waterways and shellfish beaches by using public toilets. Scoop, bag, and trash human waste if no toilets are available. Scoop, bag, and trash your pet's waste. Dispose of your trash in garbage cans or pack out your trash.
