Backyard Birding and Wildlife Gardening for Beginners

July 20, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

NEW FOR 2021! Has the recent explosion of interest in “birding” piqued your curiosity? Join CMBO Northwood staff for an introduction about starting this endlessly fascinating pastime right in your own yard! We will slowly stroll the Ryan DeWitt Trail at CMBO’s Northwood Center and briefly review three approaches to birding: finding and identifying birds; bird feeding; and turning turning your yard into a haven for birds, butterflies, and much more.


COST: $5

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 up to .5 miles, over generally level, sometimes muddy or sandy terrain.

NEW JERSEY AUDUBON’S PROGRAM GUIDELINES: Effective June 4, 2021, fully vaccinated people may attend outdoor programs without masks. If you are unvaccinated, please mask up. 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.
