Observe horseshoe crabs in their natural habitat under the stars at the Jersey Shore!

Scheduled in June during the full moon, this program includes a guided hike along Sandy Hook Bay and crafts, a power point presentation, touch tanks, and other discovery-based activities inside NJSGC’s classroom and laboratory. This year, our annual twilight walk of discovery at Horseshoe Cove on Sandy Hook will be held on Friday, June 9th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. (check-in at 5:15 p.m.). With a warm high tide and a glowing full moon, it’s the perfect time to try and see horseshoe crabs on the beach. During this program, you will learn about this amazing living fossil through hands-on exploration, crafts, a PowerPoint lecture, touch tanks, and other activities in our laboratory classroom. This event is open to individuals, families, and groups including scout troops. Cost is $9/person. Open to all ages (under 3 years of age, no charge), but advance registration is REQUIRED before the event. Registration closes on June 7th so be sure to register today!
