Talks, Workshops & Training Sessions

We will be holding a number of informational and/or training sessions up and down the coast of Connecticut. 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. 

Please note that due to weather and other circumstances the times/locations listed below may change and/or be canceled. We will do our best to update them as fast as possible, that said, please be sure to check back here 1-2 days before your session to double check the time/location.
