Pledge Summary

Cape May Point is unique among Jersey Shore communities for its natural environment, many trees, and wildlife-friendly gardens. Our quiet residential streets are used more for walking and biking than for motor vehicles. Because of our location along the Atlantic Flyway, Cape May Point is a major rest stop for birds and butterflies migrating north in the spring and south in the fall. Visitors from around the world come here to view wildlife migration.
