Free Family Nature Walks
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.

Families with children are welcome! 

Where to meet
