Tidal Flat Creature Search and Exploration

Description

Low tide on Cape Cod Bay; the water is too low for swimming, but perfect for exploration! Mass Audubon naturalists guide this family-friendly expedition to the mud flats of Barnstable Harbor. Search for the predatory moon snail and ancient looking horseshoe crab, hold a jelly-like lug worm egg case and learn how these and other amazing creatures survive the challenging environment of the intertidal zone.
