Talks, Workshops & Training Sessions

These informational/training sessions will give a brief history of Project Limulus and an overview of our research as well as training volunteers as to how to conduct spawning surveys and tag horseshoe crabs according to USFWS spawning survey and tagging protocols. We will also be signing up anyone interested in volunteering to help with the project.
