Higbee Beach Wildlife Management Area

New England Rd. Cape May, NJ 08204

Property Description

The roughly 1,100-acre area offers a unique blend of several different habitats, including dune, forest, scrub-shrub and early successional fields. The Cape May peninsula hosts one of the world's largest migrations each fall as millions of birds stop at the peninsula seeking food, cover and water. Higbee Beach plays a vital role in the migration, providing migrants with a stopover site as they increase their fitness before continuing their sojourn south. There are two viewing platforms that adds nearly 2 miles of nature trails at the area.
