Sitting in the heart of the migration flyway, thousands of bird species make their way across the Cape May Peninsula every fall. In a single day one can go from spotting a Peregrine Falcon flying low along the salt marsh to watching flocks of White Winged Scoters migrate along the ocean front. The sheer density and diversity of species migrating through the Cape May Peninsula is incredible. This combination therefore makes it one of the top birding destinations in the world and the top birding destination in North America.
In an effort to spread the word about this incredible time of year, the Wetlands Institute will be hosting a Fall Migration Festival. This festival will provide a number of guided bird walks along our local beaches and salt marshes, host leading lecturers in the birding field, give live animal demonstrations, and incorporate hands on education and conservation activities for guests of all ages.
