Learn all the fun and interesting facts about the secret lives of these "living fossils" in this hands-on and kid-friendly event as the horseshoe crabs come ashore on the Cumberland Foreside. For the past 445 million years, horseshoe crabs have come up from the depths of the ocean from mid-May to Mid-June to lay their green eggs on sandy beaches along the Atlantic Coast. Come witness this unique and interesting event! Please note that horseshoe crabs are completely harmless; they don't pinch, sting or bite.
