Horseshoe Crab Education Resources for Teachers


Each spring during May and June, the ancient, amazing and globally significant ritual of horseshoe crab spawning and mass shorebird migration stopovers brings visitors from around the world to our Delaware Bayshore backyards. Delaware Aquatic Resoures Education (ARE) offers a wealth of facilities, programs and resources in support of educating about this phenomenon.
