This annual survey is a 'citizen science' volunteer effort that gathers data about horseshoe crab spawning populations at sites on Rehoboth Bay, Indian River Bay and Little Assawoman Bay.
The surveys are conducted at high tide on evenings around the full moon and new moon throughout May and June. Volunteers will count the number of horseshoe crabs, record data and carry equipment between count sites.

Please note: Any participants under 18 MUST be accompanied by a participating adult at all times.
