In keeping with CDC protocols and the State of New Jersey directives to combat the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the U.S.Fish & Wildlife Service has ordered the Visitor Center and Nature Store at the Cape May National Wildlife Refuge to be closed until further notice.
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!
