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.

Make sure you have a couple hours to walk through all the trails if that's your plans. Make sure to take your time and look hard for the turtle in one of the ponds, he is hard to see!

Interesting and educational place to visit. Has store with books and quality items. They had a Night Ghost Crab event on beach that was fun for every age group. I stop here every year.

This Center has a continual list of activities that you should check out. The Center itself is nice and has a beautiful deck that overlooks the Cape May Harbour with binoculars for all. There is also a small nature area with the story of an estuary. We have been on two tours offered by this organization and they have been... More

While the exhibits are geared for young kids, I enjoyed the 3rd floor lookout for a great view of the harbor.( they are happy to loan people binoculars) Then I sat on the 2nd floor deck and enjoyed the view in comfort, reading my book while my daughter did stand-up paddleboarding. The rental place shares the premises which made it... More

Not much to see here. This place is geared for elementary school aged children. Classroom for local nature education and lab. 2nd floor (above gift shop) there is a balcony lookout that overlooks harbor (binoculars supplied). Kyak rentals across the street.
