Kid’s Day: Horseshoe Crabs

30048 Cedar Neck Rd. Ocean View, DE 19970

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!

This program will spend time in and around the water – clothes & shoes that can get wet/sandy are recommended. Closed-toe shoes are encouraged. Please bring water, sunscreen and insect repellant, if desired since the Preserve can be buggy.


Walk-Ups are welcome but pre-registration is encouraged. Pre-Register HERE

Please note: Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian present at all times. Thank you for your cooperation.

This program is weather permitting. Attendance is free and walk-ups are welcome. Questions? Contact Jackie Knoll at
