Green Eggs and Sand a success

The annual Green Eggs and Sand Horseshoe Crab Teacher Workshop was held May 2-4. It was co-hosted by the University of Georgia Marine Extension Service and the Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve. Twenty nine educators from South Carolina and Georgia came together to learn about and better understand the issues, science, and management of the horseshoe crab/shorebird phenomenon. The highlight of the workshop was viewing spawning horseshoe crabs and migratory shorebirds in the field. The workshop funded in part by Sapelo Island National Research Reserve provided a unique environmental education experience for teachers and a curriculum package that teachers can take back to their classroom.
