5th ANNUAL HORSESHOE CRAB FESTIVAL
Saturday, May 15, 11am-12:30pm
With the American Littoral Society, Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Park Conservancy, and Gateway National Recreation Area

 

Virtually celebrate the annual arrival of the 400-million-year-old Atlantic Horseshoe Crab with this activity-filled and information-packed webinar. During the full and new moons of May and June, female horseshoe crabs lay billions of eggs at the high tide line. At the same time, thousands of migrating shorebirds arrive to feed on the eggs, regaining the bodyweight they've lost during their long journey north. During this virtual festival you’ll see experts handle live horseshoe crabs and learn about their important ecological and medicinal values. You can also participate in our many family-friendly activities and expert talks. Registration required. Limited to 500. Free

 

Webinar details will be emailed out to those who have registered prior to the program.

 

A limited number of people will be able to join us in person at Broad Channel American Park to learn about Horseshoe Crabs. Registration is required. Click on one of the sessions below to sign up for a time slot.
