DeKorte Park's Environment Center is closed on Monday Jan. 2. DeKorte Park itself is open. Happy New Year.
The walk begins with a short talk and slide show about ducks and raptors that will be soon chilling in the Meadowlands — followed by a walk to see what's already around.
Who knows? Myabe we'll even see some of the recent waxwings, like the one above.
The talk is in the Meadowlands Environment Center.
More information follows.
Photography and watercolors depicting the changing seasons by Bergen County residents Chris Peters (left) and Bonnie Heilman (right) will line the halls of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission (NJMC) Flyway Gallery today through Friday, Jan. 27.
The photo at right was taken yesterday as the artists' hung their works in the gallery.
A reception for the artists is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The “Four Seasons” centers on North Jersey, the Jersey Shore and New England. Heilman’s paintings include tranquil lake settings and roaring waves crashing down onto shorelines.(Above, Heilman's "Autumn by the Lake."
It was near the point in the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve when I grabbed a few quick pix. Still there as of 10:45, under water two-thirds of the time.. (Thanks, Frank and Sylvia!)
