ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Cape May is one of North America's best birding locales because of its location at the intersection of two major flyways. Amid Victorian architecture and seaside charm, go birding in Cape May Point State Park, and listen as local birders detail other local birding opportunities. Well-known naturalists provide illustrated, interactive lectures with birding tips and tricks, then accompany you on field trips where you can watch the hawk-banding process and hone your birding skills.


Highlights

• Enjoy a field trip to Cape May Point State Park, site of the world-famous Cape May Hawk Watch, where habitats include beach, dune, freshwater pond, marsh, field and coastal forest.
• Join renowned naturalist Mark Garland at birding hot spots in the South Cape May Meadows and the Beanery.
• Enjoy pre-breakfast beach bird walks and test your skills at Higbees Beach Wildlife Management Area and the New Jersey Audubon Morning Flight Project Platform.
