The nature park includes over 200 acres of land where you can find all kinds of shore birds living! In addition to the birds, you will find squirrels, turtles, rabbits and other creatures in their natural habitat. On the particular day we visited we saw Canadian Geese, Swans, Ducks, Turtles, Rabbits and some Herons.
There is a great area that you can walk up on (a lookout point) and sit down. You can see for miles up there and frankly...that is where we got some of the best photos of the sea birds in their natural habitat. It also makes for a great backdrop for family photos.
We spent about 90 minutes here and absolutely loved this free family-friendly activity! We took our time and was teaching our 4 1/2 year old grand daughter the names of all of the wildlife that we saw and some facts about them. Of course...it would only take you about 30 minutes to walk the entire circumference of the nature park.
For a FREE family-friendly beach activity...we highly recommend that you visit The Nature Conservancy - South Cape May Meadows in New Jersey. Enjoy! (note: You can click on the photos in this blog post to enlarge them to see all of the beautiful details).
