Join us to learn about the marine plants and animals you can find along the Cape shoreline—mollusks, crabs, horseshoe crabs, sponges, seaweeds, and more—and hear how you can help protect their critical ecosystems. This is a great primer for anyone who wants to be able to share the wonders of the Cape’s beaches, salt marches, sand dunes and tide pools with kids and grandkids.
