The best service day ideas come from the kids and our May service day was one of them! Our kids wanted to do something to help our local wildlife.
To set up this project we reached out to the Urban Park Rangers at the Salt Marsh Nature Center in Marine Park. As it so happened they were doing a public program about Horseshoe Crabs the same day as our service project was planned. The Rangers were more than happy to have our group come join the program and stick around for a beach clean-up afterwards.
After their presentation the Rangers set us up with grabbers and bags and we went to work. While our group is small, we had an oversized impact that day! Our initiative inspired others there for the Horseshoe Crab program to stick around and join in the clean-up!
