75th Anniversary

We are pleased to announce we’ll be hosting our Cape May Fall Festival in person from Thursday evening, October 14th through Sunday, October 17th

Fall Festival Highlights

Registration will include a selection of field trips, trolley trips, boat trips and indoor programs, as well as our Thursday evening Kick-off Party at the Rusty Nail, sponsored by Kowa! Cape May Convention Hall will be packed with all kinds of nature-related vendors, plus a live show animal show every couple of hours by Nature Nick. The Fall Festival t-shirt and artwork is being designed by Louise Zemaitis and we’re looking forward to some 75th Anniversary merch!

“I can’t wait to register for the Virtual Cape May Fall Festival – easy peasy! No decisions to make, no potential workshop conflicts, no wardrobe anxieties, and the fridge is SO close. I’m looking forward to this new experience, and am practicing my birding skills here on the home front. Many thanks to all the CMBO/NJ Audubon folks for making this event happen!”

 “The Fall Festival is a great experience regardless of your level of experience or expertise.  Something for everyone!”

“The quality of the professional leaders and the helpfulness of the local volunteers really make the Cape May festival experience something special.”
