Dwight Estey will present the life story of Wellfleet’s most famous resident - the oyster. Having been both a wild-picker and a commercial shell fisherman Dwight knows of what he speaks. For fifty years he’s walked the flats observing the changes in the Wellfleet oyster fishery. What he doesn’t know first hand he’s learned through research and talking to many “real old-timers.”

His subject, the oyster, hasn’t changed. It was critical to sustaining native Americans and the colonists.
