The 2019 Green Eggs and Sand Workshop will take place June 1 and 2, 2019, at The Wetlands Institute, in Stone Harbor, New Jersey.

Green Eggs & Sand was developed by teachers, resource managers, scientists, and stakeholders working together to meet the needs of students. It focuses on promoting an in-depth understanding of the issues, science, and management of the shorelines where horseshoe crabs, shorebirds and humans must live together.

Module 1 features lessons and activities on horseshoe crab biology/ecology.

Module 2 provides material on the relationship between horseshoe crabs and migratory shorebirds.

Module 3 outlines the human connection, including the use of horseshoe crabs for bait and human health benefits.

Module 4 presents the challenges and approaches to managing the horseshoe crab resource for multiple uses and stakeholders.
