Cape May Fall Festival

October 17 - October 20
NJ United States

Join us for New Jersey Audubon's Fall Festival - the longest running birding festival in the country. Friday evening's program, entitled Golden Opportunity: Our Journey Studying the Ghosts of the Eastern Forests, will feature Michael Lanzone of Cellular Tracking Technologies, developer and manufacturer of wildlife tracking devices, and Dr. Trish Miller, a wildlife biologist who has traveled the world working with Golden Eagles and Bald Eagles.  Their stories from the field will get you excited about the future of bird research. Saturday evening, we host Amanda D. Rodenwald, Ph.D, one of Cornell Lab of Ornithology's senior faculty members.  Her presentation, entitled Making Your Cup Count: How Coffee Can Fuel Migratory Bird Conservation in the Tropics, will discuss how shade-coffee and other agroforestry practices can support bird conservation, healthy ecosystems, and human communities in Latin America. We'll have our regular full schedule of walks, talks, trolley trips, Thursday Evening Kick-off Party, and the fabulous Trip to the Rips.  You'll also want to visit Cape May Convention Hall for optics, birding tour companies, artists, craftspeople, photographers, the silent auction, and Nature Nick's live animal shows.  Fun for the whole family!  You don't want to miss it.  For more information, please click the registration link below.
