Leap into Birding

February 29 @ 7:30 am - 4:30 pm

NEW 2024!! The day that only comes once every four years, what better way to spend it than birding Cape May County! To make this day even more special, we will be attempting to track down 100 species before the day ends. A lofty goal for the month of February, or is it technically March? However, with the local knowledge of Adehl Schwaderer, CMBO’s Program Coordinator, and our skilled Associate Naturalists, Roger & Kathy Horn, we stand a chance of making it happen! This full day special field trip has something to offer birders of all skill and experience levels.

We do not set a firm daily schedule in advance, leaving us flexible to maximize birding opportunities, taking advantage of weather conditions, tides, and recent bird sightings. We may walk up to 1.5 miles, over generally level, sometimes muddy or sandy terrain. If the weather is not favorable, there is an option of spending time at the Nature Center of Cape May where Ms. Schwaderer will deliver a presentation on winter birding in Cape May County.


COST: $28 members, $35 nonmembers.

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: Please arrive at the appointed time with a full tank of gas, as transportation to field sites is by private vehicles.  We may walk up to 1.5 miles, over generally level, sometimes muddy or sandy terrain. Some trips involve walks over jetties.

CANCELLATION: CMBO programs require a minimum number of registrants to run, five days in advance of the start of the tour but are seldom cancelled. If we do cancel, due to lack of participation, severe weather, or unforeseen circumstances, we notify all participants in advance, and all are eligible for a full credit or refund. Participants may cancel without penalty if greater than 30 days in advance. Cancellations 10 to 30 days in advance may be subject to a 25% service charge. No refunds or credits for cancellations less than ten days in advance unless due to health emergencies
