May on the Bay at REI

April 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us to learn more about the May on the Bay phenomenon and how you can see it for yourself. We’ll also share how you can turn your adventure into conservation action. Horseshoe crabs often become stranded, overturned, or impinged behind natural and man-made structures and need a little help to get back to the Bay. In 2017, on New Jersey beaches, reTURN the Favor volunteers rescued over 131,000 crabs and you could join them this year to save lives.
