Loved taking the paths through the marshlands. It was wonderful to be able to see the birds in their natural habitat. Even in winter there are a lot of birds to see.

It is a nice little nature center near the harbor of Cape May. It is inviting to families with a "touch area," books, and a viewing area on the rooftop. The center also has activities and events for the public.

The girls that are there to help name the birds are very helpful and knowledgeable. It made our experience much better. There were many Audubon people there with their cameras and telescopes.

Not very much to say, it's a neat learning experience. You get a real feel for what is involved in the preservation of the area and the wildlife that is indigenous to the Cape. If you love Cape May and all it has to offer, this is a hidden stop that is a must do.

Did not really know what to expect but after we found Delaware and the location of the Center, thanks to the map in our resort guide, it was relaxing, entertaining (the staff at the counter are very helpful) and educational.
