The Nature Center of Cape May, the Wetlands Institute, North Cape Nursing Home, and the Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority supported instructional programs with materials and presenters. The Career Day program, developed by the school guidance counselor, invited dozens of speakers to present to our students and introduce them to the endless opportunities available in the larger community.
