Birds & Birding of Cape May
ADULT
Birds & Birding of Cape May
"Birds and Birding at Cape May" is a program based on the Suttons' landmark book by the same name and is the in-depth result of their efforts over many years documenting and protecting the migration and the hometown that they so love. Their program will share the storied history of birds and birding at Cape May -- a place where bird studies in the Americas in part began. Cape May, at the southern tip of New Jersey, is one of the most famous and most visited birdwatching destinations in all of North America, visited by over 100,000 birders annually. It can be counted among the top birding areas and attractions in the world. Cape May’s fame as a birding Mecca is based on a unique combination of factors -- its location and geography; the diversity, quality, and extent of the natural habitats found there; and the many protected natural areas available to birds and birders. Expect a walk through the seasons, detailing major phenomena like the autumn raptor migration, the internationally-known spring shorebird gatherings, as well as the waterfowl, seabird, wader, owl, and songbird possibilities throughout the changing seasons.

No registration required.

Located at Cape May Court House Library on September 18th @ 6:00p.m.

ADULT
U.S. Imperialism in the Pacific
On April 21st, 1898, the United States declared war against Spain. It would be the first overseas conflict fought by the U.S. It involved major campaigns in both Cuba and the Philippines.
Eventually the United States would be acquiring additional territory as well as subjugating the Philippine people resulting in a war which lasted until 1902.
This presentation traces the rise of America as a world power with the beginning of the Spanish American War, the subsequent acquisition of territories in both the Pacific and the Caribbean, and the subjugation of the Philippine people after the end of the Spanish American War [nicknamed by Sec. of State John Hay, (NOT Teddy Roosevelt) “The Splendid Little War”!]
The presentation will be a power point with ample visuals and even film clips from the Spanish American War.
Focus of the discussion will be based on the book, The Imperial Cruise by James Bradley.

This event will be held at the Stone Harbor Library on September 27th @ 5:30 p.m.
