“The Season of the Horseshoe Crab” Every year at this time an ancient seasonal ritual plays out along our shoreline. It’s the horseshoe crabs’ annual migration and spawning, the cornerstone to the migration and spawning of other species. Join us for a glimpse at this phenomenal local-to-global phenological event. We’ll look at horseshoe crabs from stem to stern: their biology, ecology, and their connections to humans and shorebirds. Presented by Sue Slotterback of the Wetlands Institute. Register by calling 609-261-2495. Series continues on May 20 with different topic.

A Junior Ranger Program favorite! Children ages 5-12 are invited to Smithville to look for all the cool animals that live underwater and are often overlooked. We will use special nets to uncover fish, aquatic insects and other small invertebrates hiding in Smithville Lake and Rancocas Creek. Wear waterproof boots and dress to get wet and muddy. Children must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event. (Note: during the summer, this program will not occur at Smithville as part of the Junior Ranger Program).
