Saturday, Sept. 9 at 9 a.m.: Family Bird & Nature Walk
Learn about this amazing natural area, with a rare dune forest between untouched beach dunes and salt marsh. Birds (both song and shore) and butterflies are plentiful. Binoculars can be provided. Nature activities, coloring sheets and a scavenger hunt are also available for kids! These walks of approximately one mile in length last about an hour and a half, and are fun for novice and experienced birders alike.
All programs start at the Visitors’ Center, located at 12001 Pacific Ave. (Ocean Drive), just west of Wildwood Crest. No pre-registration is required, but sunscreen, insect repellant and water are recommended. For more information or directions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
