DeKorte Butterflies

We say this as a reminder that Meadowlands Festival of Birding on Saturday includes a Butterfly walk at DeKorte from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

To give you an idea of what has been around: Vinny Corsello of the North Jersey Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association visitied DeKorte on Aug. 29 and came up with 21 species.

Full list follows. (Thanks, Vinny!)

A Meadowblog Milestone!

IMG_4543 Earlier this week, we reached our 300,000th page view in just over three years.

That's not too bad for a blog that simply celebrates nature within a 30.4-square-mile area that many people gave up for gone not that long ago.

We hit 100,000 views in December 2009, and 200,000 views last November.

We'd like to thank everyone for making this blog a success.
