Join the Stewardship Team for an evening of horseshoe crab monitoring! Since 2013, NYC Parks has been monitoring horseshoe crab spawning activity.

We'll walk the beach to count the number of crabs present and tag 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.

Please note: Registration for this event is full. You can sign up for the waitlist
