- Things to Do
The Delaware Bayshore plays host each spring to the magical Horseshoe Crab/shorebird spectacle, and this year's Spring Festival coincides with the full moon - awesome!!! You're in for a special treat. To experience this phenomenon from all angles, we've put together a host of special activities. There are special trolley trips, special walks, field workshops and indoor programs, including sunset activities on Friday. Add to this the cacophony of warblers singing and sporting their spring best and you're in for a fantastic festival.
This year we welcome back Kenn Kaufman, as our Keynote speaker on Saturday night. Kenn's latest book, "A Season on the Wind: Inside the World of Spring Migration" gives you an idea of why we feel he is the perfect speaker for this festival.
Your registration includes a wide selection of bird walks with our extremely talented local naturalists, as well as indoor programs, both educational and entertaining. A 3-day registration is $185. A daily registration is $69. There are also special "experiences" available exclusively to registrants, for additional fees, such as the coveted walk at the US Coast Guard Training Facility, and small group walks with Pete Dunne, Kevin Karlson, Kenn Kaufman and David La Puma.
On Friday evening. Join us for social time at The Grand Hotel with Cape May's own Scott Whittle, who will offer a presentation entitled, "What's a Warbler?" It's an early evening, so you can take advantage of one of several activities to experience the sunset/moonrise with spawning horseshoe crabs on nearby beaches. There is no extra fee for this fun evening!
