Nature Preserve: Birding, Hike, Walk, Wildlife
Situated at the southwest tip of the Cape May peninsula, the South Cape May Meadows Nature Preserve includes more than 200 acres of critical habitat in the globally renowned birding hot-spot of Cape May, New Jersey. The peninsula acts as a funnel for birds migrating along the Atlantic Flyway. The land protected here provides foraging and resting habitat for birds before they cross the Delaware Bay. The trail system provides visitors with wildlife viewing opportunities in both a freshwater wetland and on an undeveloped beach, a rarity on the heavily developed Jersey shoreline. An estimated 90,000 visitors enjoy the preserve’s natural beauty each year. The one-mile loop trail leads from the entrance through the wetland to the beachfront, and back. Trails sit atop the wetland’s levees providing a stable surface and a raised perspective for wildlife viewing. Portable toilet on site from April to October.
