what an amazing place. I enjoyed our tour, watching the hawks with their youngsters. It was amazing to learn about the importance of the tidal land here in our beautiful state of New Jersey. All the birds that come through the Cape May County area on their way to somewhere else and this area offers them a place to rest and rejuvenate . I purchased a book for my husband as a wedding anniversary gift a guide to birds in New Jersey. He is enjoying greatly. We will have to plan another visit late late September so we can experience this beautiful area together!
So much fun! We did the Safari which was cool and educational. Such a great organization. Views were great from upstairs too. Can't wait to go back in the spring to see some other animals.
