Horseshoe Crab Encounters
Saturday, September 8 at 11:00 am
Join Jodie Limon Montoya, Education Coordinator from the Long
Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, as she introduces our audience to horseshoe crabs.
Horseshoe crabs journey to the bays, coves, and tidal flats of Cape Cod to spawn and lay clusters of eggs. Many locals
recall the bay bottom covered by a carpet of these armored arthropods so dense
that there wasn’t space for a single footstep. Examine horseshoe crab molts and
learn about their amazing anatomy, life cycle, and adaptations, and discover
the challenges facing these ancient creatures today.
