The brand new Cape May Point Science Center is set to open just over 2 years after it was sold by the Sisters of St. Joseph's, Philadelphia-based nuns, who used it as a summer retreat for over 100 years (1909-2021). Cape May is a crucial ecological area, home to the largest spawning-event of horseshoe crabs in the world, and also one of the primary migratory routes for north-south traveling birds who come from as far as South America. The county is also a major stop for monarch butterfly migrations and much more!
Here is what they had to say on their Facebook page, as well as how to buy tickets:
