Horseshoe Crab Twilight Beach Walk

A once-a-year twilight walk of discovery at Horseshoe Cove on Sandy Hook will be held in 2015 on June 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. (Raindate: June 7, 6 to 8 p.m.).  There will be a warm high tide, and  a full moon so  it’s the perfect time to  see  horseshoe crabs on the beach.  We will learn about this amazing living fossil through hands-on exploration and other activities.  Open to all ages of scouts and their families.  Scouts will earn a Fun Patch during this program. To register, click here.
