The Maritime Aquarium map


Horseshoe crabs come up onto beaches to spawn on the nights of the full and new moons in spring. That’s a tagging bonanza time for researchers, so extra volunteers are needed to help. Volunteers should be in 10th grade or older. Younger children can assist if working with a parent, teacher or guardian. Tagging sessions at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk will be held on selected early mornings and late nights in late May, June and July.
