We hope you' be able join us on Sunday, May 6, for our annual spring walk at Losen Slote. This is primetime for warblers and other migrants, and we hope to see our share. As we did last year, we'll try to groom the trails and clean up any litter we find along the way.
When we did a little scouting trip on Thursday, we noticed the trails were muddy/puddled in a few places, so waterproof boots are a good idea if you've got them.
A post with the list of birds we saw last May on our Losen Slote walk — including 11 species of warblers — is here.
Full event listing follows.

First-Sunday-of-the Month Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
This free two-hour nature walk starts at the entrance to Losen Slote Creek Park in Little Ferry. We’ll look for warblers and other spring arrivals – and we’ll do a little clean-up, so bring gloves and small clippers if you have them. We’ll supply the trashbags. Note: Wear hiking boots if you’ve got them; the trails can be a little muddy. The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for last-minute weather updates. You will have to sign a standard liability release that is good for NJMC/BCAS events throughout the year.
