Northwest Creek Nature Paddle with South Fork Natural History Society
Saturday June 24, 2017
9 am – 11 am
We’ll search for two very different estuarine species that will be laying eggs during this month. Timed to coincide with the new moon high tide, the ancient and interesting Horseshoe Crab should be visible laying eggs during the late morning high tide. We will discuss current conservation concerns related to Horseshoe Crabs, their important ecological role in the ecosystem, and some of their unique features for life in the estuary. June is also nesting time for our native turtles, including our year-round resident of the estuary: the Diamondback Terrapin. We will look for evidence of their nests on shore, and discuss current conservation efforts to protect this species. Please register at South Fork Natural History Museum: 631-537-9735
