In partnership with the Milton Chamber of Commerce for 11 years, this festival celebrates horseshoe crabs, shorebirds, and other natural resources while encouraging citizen awareness and participation in wildlife-dependent recreation. Activities occur at the Milton Municipal Park and Prime Hook NWR. Milton Municipal Park will feature music, a tent with exhibits from environmental organizations, food, children’s activities, the Horseshoe Crab Express train ride, scavenger hunts, art show, canoe rentals, boat rides, and games. Prime Hook NWR will feature opportunities for visitors to get outside and connect with nature such as a guided canoe trip, nature hikes, pond seining, videos, birding trips, building bluebird houses, archery family fun shoot, horseshoe crab touch tank, and more. Refuge information will be provided on a shuttle bus traveling between the Town and the Refuge. For more information, visit the Milton Chamber of Commerce’s website at www.historicmilton.com/events
