Kid’s Day (Sep 10): Horseshoe Crabs
Sep 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Learn about horseshoe crabs, and why they make their way onto the beaches of the Inland Bays, and participate in a demonstration survey. This program dives into the ecology, anatomy, and benefits of horseshoe crabs using a lifelike model (and hopefully a living organism!). Participants will have the opportunity to explore the beach and the Preserve and hopefully find a living horseshoe crab!
This program will spend time in and around the water – clothes & shoes that can get wet/sandy are recommended. Closed-toe shoes are encouraged. Please bring water, sunscreen and insect repellant, if desired since the Preserve can be buggy.
Please note: Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian present at all times. Thank you for your cooperation.
This program is weather permitting. Attendance is free and walk-ups are welcome. Questions? Contact Jackie Knoll at email@example.com
