  • butterfly biology with CMBO leader Jack, very knowledgeable youngster who goes through a banding and info session, though we didn't see many butterflies  more »
  • This is a really well kept up nature preserve with lots of lovely paths. The birds were quiet when we were there but I'm sure on other days they are amazing!  more »

  • No road sign advertising the preserve on Route 626 that I saw — turn on Wilson street and there’s a parking lot at the end of the short street. Signage for the trails is okay but could use improvement. I got off track taking the “perimeter” trail a few times. I recommend taking a picture of the map (or I attached mine) at the entrance for reference and also using Google/Apple maps, if necessary, to help. A very pretty and well maintained park overall but it’s also a rustic preserve, so it has a natural feel.
  • A beautiful hideaway nature preserve on the outskirts of the world famous Seashore Resort of Cape May, NJ. Sit a spell and soak up the sudden ruralness of our community.
