On Friday, April 17, at Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, Alison Leschen, a biologist with the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries, led a training program for people interested in inventorying and monitoring the horseshoe crab population on Martha's Vineyard. Volunteers will also conduct spawning surveys at various Island beaches. Despite its name, horseshoe crabs are more closely related to spiders, ticks, and scorpions than to crabs, although they can grow up to 24 inches in length. There will be another training session in May for those who would like to participate in the spring survey. Call 508-627-4860.
