Business Membership Program

Those of us who call the Jersey Cape our home, take pride in our beautiful region. Visitors come from near and far to enjoy our beaches and activities. But a growing number of visitors want to see more than just the beach and boardwalks. They want to learn more about our natural environment, our history, and all that makes the Jersey Cape more than just a place to kick back and relax.

According to the Cape May County Tourism Department, a growing number of visitors are interested in our region because of its amazing ecology. Eco-tourism is a fast-growing niche and we should capture this great opportunity to create even more lasting memories for our visitors.

 

At The Wetlands Institute, we pride ourselves in offering hands-on and interactive opportunities for visitors of all ages to connect with our coastal ecosystems in a way that they can relate to. They can interact with live animals who live in the marsh and local waterways. They can also learn how important it is to protect the fragile coast and wetlands, not only for these animals but also for the coastal resilience that allows us all to enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches we might take for granted.

We are excited to announce new business partnership opportunities. This new program will allow your business to partner with The Wetlands Institute in taking advantage of the growing EcoTourism trend. We are launching a Business Membership program which offers flexible options your business can choose from. Below, you will find a list of available membership package options and their benefits to your business.
