Registration is now open!   December 14 – Matt Weismantel – “Are You My Mother?” A New Jersey Adoptee’s Perspective on Search and Reunion     There is always a great deal to unpack in any closed adoption search and reunion effort, and it is not easy to assess how someone will handle their discoveries. No matter the approach, it is rarely an antiseptic process— and can be further complicated by the rose-colored glasses of expectation.

LEARN MORE Climb the Cape May Lighthouse at night under the light of the lovely full moon Follow the light of the full moon Friday, March 18 from 7pm-9pm on a rare nighttime climb up the 199 cast iron spiral staircase steps to the top of the Cape May Lighthouse. Enjoy a nighttime view nearly 156 feet above the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Interpretive panels along the climb tell stories of Lighthouse Keepers, the surrounding area, and how the lighthouse functioned historically, and are located at landings along the way. The 1859 Cape May Lighthouse is a state historic site and the third beacon on this site. Still an active aid to navigation, it was restored and is maintained by Cape May MAC (Museums+Arts+Culture). Since it opened to the public in 1988, more than 2.5 million visitors have climbed to the top, but far fewer have climbed at nighttime. Mark your calendar now for more of these special evening climbs in 2022: April 16, May 16, June 14 (8pm-10pm), July 13  (8pm-10pm),  Aug
