Greenwich Daily Voice: The Connecticut Humanities “Quick Grants” program has awarded $1,500 to the Bruce Museum in Greenwich to help present a series of lectures on the “History of Oyster Fishing on Long Island Sound.”

The series, which complements the museum’s exhibition “Oysters: Pearls of Long Island Sound” (on view through March 23), will explore the history of shellfishing on the Sound – from the Native Americans and Connecticut residents of the 18th and 19th centuries to the current work of the Shellfish Commission.
