Volunteer training: Horseshoe crab monitoring

Coastal Rivers' Salt Bay Farm 110 Belvedere Road, Damariscotta, ME, United States

Are you surprised to learn that horseshoe crabs live in Maine? Many folks are. Join our volunteer group to monitor our local horseshoe crab population as we work to learn more about them. The count has been ongoing for 15 years, enabling us to document population changes over time.


Roadside and shoreline cleanup at Glidden Point Preserve

Glidden Point Preserve Rt 215, Newcastle, ME

Please join us for a clean-up effort at Glidden Point Preserve! The proximity to Route 1 and its extensive shoreline make this location a hotspot for both roadside trash and marine debris.

Some of us will work along Route 1, while others will clean up along the shore. The more we can remove from the water's edge, the less likely this trash will impact the estuary.
