Join the American Littoral Society and partners for the Fifth Annual Horseshoe Crab Festival. This year the festival will offer both in-person and virtual attendance to those who want to see the annual mating ritual of the Horseshoe Crab.
Check links above to see how you can take part in the festival. Read on for more information.
Meet at the refuge visitor center 30 minutes before the in-person sessions in order to carpool to a nearby beach or drive directly to the beach site at the south end of Broad Channel. There will be three in-person sessions, which are each limited to 25 people at each. There is no limit on the number that can attend virtually.
For more information contact Northeast Chapter Director Don Riepe at 718-474-0896 or e-mail: email@example.com.
Due to Covid precautions, registration is required. Littoral Society staff and volunteers will follow all state-mandated COVID-19 safety protocols and ask that all volunteers wear a mask, keep six feet distance from other volunteers, and to please stay home if you or someone you have been in contact with are sick. Society staff reserves the right to ask volunteers who are not following these guidelines to leave immediately.
