DPNC Program Cancellation Policy: Pre-registration allows the Nature Center to secure staffing and materials for programs, so that we may best serve you. We require pre-registration and pre-payment for most programs in order to reserve a space. If DPNC cancels a program, you will receive a full refund. If you withdraw from a program more than 4 days in advance, you will receive a refund less a 25% administrative fee. Withdrawals within 4 days of a program are not refundable. Preregistration for all programs is always recommended. Walk-ins should be prepared to pay by check or with exact change for programs at Coogan Farm, off-site, or after hours, and may be turned away if program is full.

Join DPNC educator for an evening of crabbing. Meet at the Peace Sanctuary and walk to a crabbing location. There will be a brief intro to basic techniques of crabbing and crab identification and then we head out to put your knowledge to work. We provide nets, bait and lines. Bring a headlamp or flashlight to spot crabs. Wear appropriate shoes (no Crocs or flip flops). We’ll be in the water and walking on slippery rocks. Meets at 233 River Road in Mystic.
