With American Littoral Society, Gateway National Recreation Area, New York Aquarium, Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy
Virtually celebrate the annual arrival of the 400-million-year-old Atlantic Horseshoe Crab with this activity and information packed webinar. During full and new moons of May and June, females 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 body weight 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. Hosted by New York City Audubon Society with the American Littoral Society, Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, New York Aquarium and Gateway National Recreation Area. Register atEventbrite. Free
Webinar details will be emailed out to those who have registered prior to the program.
