Kid’s Day: Discovery Bay – Horseshoe Crabs

Perfect for kids of all ages! Discover the life of this prehistoric creature up close and personal at the James Farm Ecological Preserve!

Learn about horseshoe crabs, why they make their way onto the beaches of the Inland Bays, and participate in a demonstration survey. This program dives into the ecology, anatomy, and benefits of horseshoe crabs using a lifelike model (and hopefully a living organism!). Participants will have the opportunity to explore the beach and the Preserve and hopefully find a living horseshoe crab!

Perfect for participants of all ages! Kid’s days allow children of all ages to connect with nature and explore by utilizing hands-on learning!

Participants will be in and around the water, so please wear clothes & shoes that can get wet and/or sandy. Closed-toe shoes are encouraged. Please remember to bring water, sunscreen and insect repellant, if desired since the Preserve can be buggy.

Please note: Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian present at all times. Thank you for your cooperation. By registering for this program you will be added to the Center’s e-newsletter.

Accessibility: We’ll be walking about .25 mile to the beach and spending the majority of the program at the beach wading in the water.

This program is weather permitting. Attendance is free, pre-registration is encouraged. Questions? Contact Maddie Fox at
