Fall Festival- Cape May
October 18, 2018 - October 21, 2018Free
NJ Audubon’s Fall Festival is the longest running birding festival in the country.
New Jersey Audubon’s Cape May Bird Observatory has its finger on the pulse of fall migration and you are invited to be a part of it. Four official migratory counts take place during the fall: the Monarch Monitoring Project, the Avalon Seawatch, the Morning Flight Songbird Count, and of course the celebrated Cape May Hawkwatch. There is no better way to immerse yourself in the storied birding experience that is Cape May than attending this festival.
