Dear Members and Friends,

I hope most of you know by now that we have been renting the deWitt Cottage and surrounding grounds as a venue for various types of events; such as, family reunions, graduation parties, picnics, corporate retreats, baby showers, and wedding ceremonies and receptions. In the pictures below on June 10, 2023 Brad and Elizabeth Zartman were saying their wedding vows while being closely watched by a four legged wedding crasher. You never know what adventure awaits at the Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum.

Beginning July 3, 2023 through July 25, 2023, you, your family and friends will be able to purchase fresh Wicked Salts Oysters and Little Neck Clams to go from Ocean Cove Seafood to benefit Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum (AWHM). AWHM will receive a percentage of all orders sold. If you have ever been to one of our annual oyster roasts, you are familiar with the delicious taste of these oysters. We are excited to partner and fundraise with Ocean Cove Seafood, who has supported us for years. You must pre-order online with Eventbrite at: AWHM Wicked Salts Fundraiser. 50 Count Wicked Salts Oyster $50, 100 Count Wicked Salts Oyster $80, 100 Count Little Neck Clams $45.
