Creek Critter Day at Hoffler Creek (Portsmouth)

August 6

Join us at our Oyster Pier with Dr. Jessica Thompson, a biologist from Christopher Newport University, who will open up habitat cubes from the creek. She will help us explore the little critters that support the diverse ecosystem of our salt marsh! Participants can expect to see blue crabs, sea squirts, snails, fish, shrimp, worms, and other aquatic creatures usually out of sight. Don’t miss your chance to catch some of the most elusive critters in Hoffler Creek!


This drop-in educational event is completely free, but donations to help us continue promoting similar programs are greatly appreciated.
