Cape May Migration with SPNI 4-6 May 2018


With the spring migration just around the corner we wanted to invite you to take part in a unique weekend about birds, migration and more.

In early May, SPNI birders Dan Alon and Jonathan Meyrav will once again visit our shores to spread the word of birding and conservation in Israel and beyond. For the first time ever we will be holding a special migration themed weekend in Cape May New Jersey.

The event will take place on May 4-6 in Cape May and will include birding, presentations and social activities focusing on the beauty of migration. The Cape May weekend is hosted by the SPNI birders in conjunction with the Cape May Bird Observatory.

This event is designed especially for our supporters and will include many great birders and talks that celebrate the wonderful cross border conservation effort.

The presentations will be held at the Grand Hotel in Cape May but visitors are welcome to stay where they wish. Birding will be at key sites around Cape May including the famous Cape May Meadows, the Cape May State Park and some lesser known local sites.
