The Nature Center of Cape May. Is a great place to visit, especially for bird lovers in the fall. They have marches with plenty of overlooks. You can walk along the beach and there are plenty of Nature trails to hike and see many verities of Birds.

We went to the Nature Center during our stay at Cape May during the Labor Day Weekend. We spent most of our morning there just checking out what they have. We enjoyed ourselves checking out the fish and other creatures they had for exhibits. The tower was a great place to see a beautiful view of Cape May Harbor. We were able to relax and read at the upstairs lounge.

The Nature Center of Cape May is located on Cape May Harbor, with a nice view of the boats and harbor birds. The center's focus is on their education programs, and they also offer kayak rentals and tours of the harbor, as well as paddle-board rentals.

The main building features a sizable gift shop with nature-themed items, an observation tower over the harbor, and displays of shells, bones, feathers and other nature items. A separate building houses aquariums with marine animals for viewing in the summer season. We enjoyed our personal tour from the knowledgeable teen intern.

There are other small buildings used for education programs. Parking is available on the street. Admission is free but donations are welcome.

Seeing, touching, doing, that's what the Nature Center of Cape May is all about. A nice man took us through to the marsh with a seine net and we collected all sorts of marine life. We learned how to tell a male from a female crab-my son still remembers! A little marine education on our vacation was a great way to spend a morning in Cape May.
