Get in touch with nature.
Inspired to commune with nature when skies are gray? Cape May County offers various indoor facilities that allow interaction with wildlife and its habitats. The Wetlands Institute of Stone Harbor, surrounded by award winning gardens with hundreds of native plants, features Marshview Hall from which visitors can observe the surrounding marsh and sample wildlife art and carvings. The Cape May Bird Observatory also proves to be a great lookout point on a rainy day. Binoculars make for an even better look and can be purchased in the nature shop. To get a closer look at nature’s smaller critters, head over to the Wildwood Insectarium which displays thousands of live and mounted insects and has numerous interactive displays.
