Project Limulus horseshoe crab survey

Project Limulus horseshoe crab survey

We meet at the beach at the beginning of Daniel Ave., Indian Cove, Guilford (see Spawning Survey Schedule below). Bring a flashlight or head lamp at night. Wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothes. Your feet will probably get wet. The survey usually takes about an hour. No training is necessary ahead of time, we will show you what to do.

Here are the directions to the beach. Take Rt. 146 to Mulberry Point Rd. Turn south onto Mulberry Point Rd. Continue for about a mile until you come to a Y-fork. Keep to the right. The beach is on the left and the parking area is across from it (map). Call my home #, 203-453-9053 or my cell, 203-668-1951 if you have any trouble finding it: Surveys will begin promptly at the time shown on the schedule. Please arrive at the beach 10 minutes early.

Please let me know ahead of time if you plan to attend a session. My phone is 203-453-9053 and my email is Thanks so much for your help.
