Workshops in the Birding Capital of North America!

These workshops are a fun and attentive way to visit one of the best birding and natural history places on the planet. From our cadre of in-depth birding excursions to a celebration of butterflies, dragonflies, and all things wild, you’re sure to find an offering that catches your eye. All of our workshops are led by experts in their field: world-class birders and naturalists that have often written the guides we all rely on. Our intimate approach to enjoyment and teaching will provide the opportunity and information you need to grow in understanding and appreciation – the leader-to-participant ratio is 12:1 or better. While the majority of time is spent in the field watching birds and nature, some of the workshops will incorporate an indoor session – a chance to demonstrate and discuss identification, techniques, conservation, and ecology. Along the way, you’ll meet like-minded people and are sure to form lasting memories and friendships. From beginner to advanced, all are welcome! All the while, your registration fees are helping support the mission of New Jersey Audubon’s Cape May Bird Observatory.
