Horseshoe Crab Monitoring @ Squires Pond
May 13 @ 10:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Join Peconic Estuary Program on one of our horseshoe crab surveys at Squires Pond! This is a fun, family-friendly way to learn hands-on about horseshoe crabs.  No experience necessary!  Volunteers will meet at 10:00pm at the end of Squires Pond Road.  We will be wading through some areas and it will be cold, so bundle up! Waders are recommended but not necessary, as rain boots will do. We also recommend bringing a head lamp or flash light.

There are volunteer forms to fill out ahead of time on the NY Horseshoe Crab website: nyhorseshoecrab.org
Go to “Sites” and then click on the Squires Pond, Hampton Bays location where you will find the waiver form and volunteer agreement.

Let us know you’ll be there by RSVPing to peptalk@peconicestuary.org
