Join the Stewardship Team for an evening of horseshoe crab monitoring!
Since 2013, NYC Parks has been monitoring horseshoe crab spawning activity. We'll be walking the beach to count the number of crabs present and tagging them to keep track of how many we've already seen as part of NYC Parks' ongoing effort to monitor their activity. This exciting work contributes to a long-term research study that is helping us to better understand and protect the horseshoe crabs that live in our urban waters.
Come dressed in sturdy boots or shoes, long pants, and clothing that can get dirty. Please bring your own water bottle to this event.
Please note: Space is limited and registration is required. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.
