What place does the oyster have in local history? Find out at the Calvert Marine Museum’s Lore Oyster House Day. The event will take place Saturday, Aug. 20, from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Stop by the J.C. Lore Oyster House in Solomons for on-going activities both in the oyster house and out on the dock. Costumed interpreters will be on site. Try your hand at oyster tonging; learn to tie a towline and coil a rope; tie on an apron and become a shucker; and measure oysters and follow the path an oyster takes through the processing house from the loading dock to the shipping room. Learn oyster anatomy and see the museum’s giant soft sculpture oyster, Rock-E-Feller.
