Downe Township, Cumberland County
Join us along the Delaware Bayshore to celebrate spring migration! Fortescue beach is home to one of the American Littoral Society’s restoration projects, which serves to keep sand on the beach and create ideal habitat for horseshoe crabs and migratory shorebirds.
The Delaware Bay is home to the largest population of spawning horseshoe crabs in the world, with their peak season coinciding with the event which will allow the community to come together and experience this spectacle that is sought after by many. Horseshoe crab lessons, hands-on activities, and beachcombing will take place, along with guided bird walks led by experts.
A local musician will entertain, while food and refreshments will be served. Families will be able to discover New Jersey’s beautiful hidden coast, while marveling at horseshoe crabs by sunset. Ample parking will be available, and tide times will be checked to ensure easy entrance and exiting. Please bring picnic blankets, beach/camp chairs, beach umbrellas or personal tents for a beach-style picnic.
Members will have access to our Members Only tent with beer from New Jersey's Tonewood Brewing, wine and oysters from Cape May Salts!
