Join CMBO naturalist Chuck Slugg to learn about all things optics! Our resident expert on all things optics will explain what all those numbers mean, how to choose binoculars and spotting scopes that fit your budget and any special needs you have. You will have the opportunity to field test an array of optics outside (recommended for children 12 and up). This program will take place outdoors and involve minimal walking.
Cost: $10 members, $15 nonmembers

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: We bird in all weather. Be sure to check the forecast in advance and dress in layers appropriate for prevailing weather conditions. The weather in Cape May can differ considerably from nearby inland areas and may be warmer, colder, or windier so it’s best to be over prepared. We may have to bird in the rain, so please bring your rain gear.
TRANSPORTATION: We may walk over generally level, sometimes muddy or sandy terrain.
NEW JERSEY AUDUBON’S PROGRAM GUIDELINES: New Jersey counties are varied in their COVID-19 community transmission rates. New Jersey Audubon highly recommends that anyone who is not fully vaccinated or who wants additional protection should consider wearing a mask and social distancing, especially indoors. Please do not come to a program if you are sick, have a sick family member or have reason to believe you may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus.
CANCELLATION: NJ Audubon’s CMBO programs are virtually never cancelled. If we cancel, due to lack of participation, severe weather, or unforeseen circumstances, all participants will be notified as soon as possible and are eligible for a full refund. Participants may cancel without penalty if greater than 48 hours in advance. Sorry, no refund for cancellations less than 48 hours in advance unless due to health emergencies; however, registrations can be transferred to another program in the future.
We reserve the right to substitute leaders if necessary, though this rarely happens.
