Event Description

They occupy our forests, fields, parks, beaches, farms, backyards and even our homes. But many New Jerseyans remain largely unaware of the profound natural and cultural significance of these ubiquitous avian creatures. This exhibition brings together nearly 200 rarely-seen artifacts to explore the status of our fine feathered friends as ecological mainstay and their historical role as a design-inspiring force, or muse, for New Jersey craftspeople. Visitor can also create a bird button to take home.

Special events: April 18 Bird Bonanza, 10 am - 3 pm Come share your love of all our favorite feathered friends! Fla-mingle with bird experts, explore the lives of birds through egg-citing games and demonstrations, and practice your skills as a fledgling citizen scientist and birdwatcher! 

July 18 Famous Feathered Friends, featuring live eagle Noah and great horned owl Stella for a meet & greet!
