Event description: This annual event brings together children, families, community members and nature center visitors in celebration of the Mispillion Harbor and it's importance as a habitat for horseshoe crabs and migratory shorebirds. Children may participate in environmental eco-stations, birders can view this migratory phenomenon from the deck, and visitors can check out the wildlife and displays in the nature center! There's fun to be had by all!
