Join us at the Cape May Convention Hall for a wide variety of international birding tour companies, publishers and magazines, artists, leading optics brands, and, of course, Nature Nick.  All free and fun for the whole family.

Registration will include a selection of field trips, trolley trips, boat trips, and indoor programs, as well as our Thursday evening Kick-off Party at the Rusty Nail! Cape May Convention Hall will be packed with all kinds of nature-related vendors, plus a live animal show every couple of hours by Nature Nick.

Keynote: Peter Harrison, renowned seabird expert, author, artist, and conservationist, has written and illustrated over a dozen books. His latest, SEABIRDS: The New Identification Guide, published in 2021, is a comprehensive guide to the world’s 434 seabird species and the culmination of a lifetime dedicated to seabirding.

Registration opens July 2023.
