Family-friendly, Free Nature Programs at Cape May National Wildlife Refuge


Free Family Nature Walk
Saturday, September 21 at 9 a.m.

Friends of Cape May NWR are continuing their fun, free, family-friendly bird walks all summer long at 2-Mile Beach in Wildwood Crest. Look for the Free Bird walk sign where Pacific Avenue turns into Ocean Drive, on the east side of the street. Meet at the 2-Mile Visitor Center Parking Lot (just north of the gate for the former Coast Guard base).  Explore this hidden gem of undeveloped barrier island ocean beach, and learn about the amazing birds with loaner binoculars and a spotting scope.  Families with children are welcome!


Cape May National Wildlife Refuge is open Saturday and Sunday in September and October, with additional dates of Thursday, Oct. 17 and Friday, Oct. 18 during the bird festival. The Nature Store Fall hours will be 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. Additional store dates are Friday-Sunday, Nov. 29-Dec. 1, and Saturday, Dec. 7 and Sunday, Dec. 8.

There will be a special Free Family Nature Walk on Saturday, October 19 at 9 a.m.
