Horseshoe Crab Round Up – Family program, $4 cash per person upon arrival

August 27 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for a hike to look for horseshoe crabs!

Let’s investigate these living fossils that come to our shores in the spring! We will have a short lesson, followed by a walk down to the marsh to observe these creatures during their high tide spawning periods. Wear shoes that can get wet.

$4 per cash person upon arrival. Reservations are required for all programs. Space is limited. If you are unable to keep your reservation, please cancel so others may have the opportunity to attend. Please try to arrive 10 minutes early. We meet at Field 3, just East of the restrooms.
