Cape Henlopen State Park offers ‘Seining the Bay’ through Aug. 22

LEWES (Aug. 7, 2013) – Summer wouldn’t be complete without catching a crab or picking up a fish, and a great way to do it is during Cape Henlopen State Park’s “Seining the Bay” program. This family-friendly activity will be offered at 9 a.m. every Wednesday and Thursday through Aug. 22 at the Nature Center. The program costs $5 per person, and is recommended for ages 5 and up with a paying adult.

Attendees should dress to get wet and wear secure footwear – no flip-flops – to help collect sea creatures with a seining net.

There is no pre-registration – instead, tickets will be available for sale on a first-come, first-served basis at the Nature Center starting at 9 a.m. the day of the program, with a maximum of six tickets per person. More information is available by calling 302-645-6852.

The Seaside Nature Center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Borrow-A-Bike program is available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather permitting.

More information about programs offered at Cape Henlopen and all of Delaware State Parks can be found at
