Signs will be made by local school students after they learn about the Delaware Bay ecosystem. They can be displayed in public spaces, businesses, or homes. They will help raise awareness and share an important conservation message.
To learn more contact Laura Chamberlin.
Making a difference on the Delaware Bay is as easy as rescuing a stranded horseshoe crab. 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.
For Delaware beaches, go to Just flip ‘em!®.
For New Jersey beaches, go to reTURN the Favor for guidance on how to work on closed beaches, collect data, and participate in an event.
If you have a group that wants to volunteer, please contact us.
Don’t forget to check our Resources for several tools for planning trips including finding other things to do, where to stay and eat, and other helpful tips.
Through May and June, there will be six horseshoe crab tagging and tag re-sighting events on Fortescue and Moore’s Beaches in Cumberland County; and on Reed’s, Cook’s, Kimble’s, and Pierce’s Point Beaches in Cape May County.
- Keep your distance from feeding birds. They need every minute to feed.
- Some beaches are closed during shorebird migration, to allow maximum feeding time.
- Use designated viewing areas. Find a map at www.celebratedebay.org
- Keep dogs leashed at all times. Just the sight of the dog, is a predator alarm for birds.
- Please rescue overturned horseshoe crabs by putting them back on their feet. Do not lift by the tail.
- Do not drive motorized vehicles on beach.
