    ReClam the Bay Clam Trail

    Did you know Ocean County has a clam trail? The organization ReClam the Bay has giant hand painted clam shells scattered across the shore towns in Ocean County. Most of them in the southern part of the county. Get the map and full list here. Then you can get the rules here. One day a few years ago my mom, brother, and I did the trail. It was a whole lot of fun. - Artist Pat Johnson
