For families, the Nature Center of Cape May, part of New Jersey Audubon, is a great spot to enjoy during your trip to Cape May. The center focuses on protecting wildlife sanctuaries and researching the flora and fauna of New Jersey, as it promotes a hands-on learning experience through a variety of different activities.
A few of these, held at different times throughout the spring and summer, include gardening workshops, tour boat trips to the nearby coastal wetlands, birding activities, biking tours and nighttime visits to the beach to look for crabs. Other educational programs for participants through college level are also organized by the center at outdoor habitats and meeting places.
These tours are often organized to take place out in the wild, but the centerís building is also worth a visit: it has exhibits, aquariums with live inhabitants, and a third-floor observation deck that provides a complete view of the surrounding area.
If you enjoy your visit to the Nature Center of Cape May, you might also consider visiting the Cape May Bird Observatory, also part of New Jersey Audubon.
