COAST QUEST SHORE PROGRAM
Search for Long Island Sound marine life as we explore the Long Wharf Nature Preserve! Coast Quest campers spend their day exploring the Long Island Sound coastline, searching for prehistoric horseshoe crabs and discovering oysters and mussels in their natural habitats! Campers play games, sing songs, and get their feet wet while learning about the local ecosystem. Campers focus on topics such as habitats, ecosystems, conservation, watersheds, water pollution, and stewardship of the coastline while having a blast exploring and making new friendships!
