Volunteer Training: Horseshoe Crab Survey

For more than a decade, the Center has also been collecting vital information about horseshoe crabs that spawn in the Bays through its Horseshoe Crab Survey. In addition to counting the number of horseshoe crabs observed, volunteers collect additional data on this iconic species and even help to tag some crabs which will provide insight on their movements throughout the Bays and nearby estuaries.

This year, all training sessions will be held in-person and virtually through Zoom. Registration information and the required volunteer waivers are available online at https://www.inlandbays.org/get-involved/volunteer/. The dates and times for each training along with more information about each particular volunteer effort are provided below.

Recordings of all training sessions will be made available on the individual programs’ webpage following the scheduled sessions.
