Horseshoe Crabs On Daufuskie With Dawn Brut, Coastal Discovery Museum Naturalist

July 19, 2022 @ 1:45 pm - 2:45 pm

Join Dawn Brut, Naturalist and Director of Education at Coastal Discovery Museum for a
fascinating presentation on the horseshoe crab. Every spring the beaches of South Carolina are
inundated with these ancient creatures as they leave the water to spawn at high tide. With its tough
helmet like body and long pointed tail, the horseshoe crab is one of the most intriguing and
misunderstood marine invertebrates found in our marine waters.

Dive in with us as we explore the horseshoe crab and investigate the life cycle and adaptations
of this living fossil. This is also a great opportunity to learn about the critical role the horseshoe crabs
play in both wildlife conservation and human health!

Dawn joined the Coastal Discovery Museum staff in 2013, creating, coordinating, and leading
school groups and youth groups as well as updating educational programs and displays for Museum
guests, facilitating teacher workshops, live animal care and training docents for the Museum.

ALL ARE WELCOME! The talk will take place at the Helmus Center at Haig Point from 1:45-
2:45 PM. There will be a sign posted for the event at the back gate directing those coming from
outside Haig Point to enter on the left for parking at the Helmus Center.
