Tonight’s #volunteer Horseshoe Crab survey only documented 3 crabs with rough wave action. However, the views (and company) were quite gorgeous on a rarely chilly June evening. #abbottsmill #limuluslove #delnature #slaughterbeach #horseshoecrab #education #conservation #advocacy #cleanwater

The Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) in our @nationalwildlife #CertifiedWildlifeHabitat garden is beginning to bloom, providing essential nectar for Monarch Butterflies and other pollinators. #abbottsmill #delnature #conservation #education #advocacy #gardeningforwildlife #cleanwater #nativeplants

We spy with our little eye a native, non-venomous Northern Water Snake 🐍 (Nerodia sipedon) working on its summer tan next to Johnson’s Branch. #abbottsmill #delnature #education #conservation #advocacy #cleanwater

Our newest neighbors, these cute
Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) fledglings, have made quite the chatter waiting for Mom and Dad to bring back some flying insects for snack time. #abbottsmill #delnature #education #conservation #advocacy #shantybirds

We recently found this Tessellated Darter (Etheostoma olmstedi) in Johnson’s Branch during a stream survey with students. These unique fish serve as a host for the Dwarf Wedge (freshwater) Mussel parasitic larvae, called glochidium. The larvae receives little nutrition from the fish, but uses it only as a mean of upstream dispersal. After a few weeks, the larvae detaches itself from the unharmed fish and drops to the stream bottom to begin its life as a juvenile mussel. Adult Dwarf Wedge mussels live about 10 years, and serve an important role as filter-feeders in the stream ecosystem, eating algae and other suspended particles which keeps the water clean and healthy. #abbottsmill #delnature #education #conservation #advocacy #cleanwater
