Don’t forget to register for Moth Night! The free event takes place on Tuesday, July 24, from 8:30 to 10 p.m. The program features a talk by moth expert Elena Tartaglia on the importance of these amazing, lesser-known cousins of butterflies. You’ll gain a new perspective on the misunderstood creatures and how they benefit the environment.
We’ve also got kid’s activities both during and after the talk, including painting trees to attract moths. The event is sponsored by the NJSEA and the Bergen County Audubon Society and is part of National Moth Week.

The mallards at DeKorte on Tuesday seem to have been at home out of the water. Thanks to Joe Koscielny for these photos and more!
Many thanks to Jill Weiss for these photos taken yesterday at DeKorte Park of a beautiful Black Skimmer doing what skimmers do best!
Having a rough morning. This Malllard family photo courtesy of Dee De Santis should cheer you up! Too cute!
The tulip tree in DeKorte Park has started to bloom! Our own Gaby Bennett-Meany took these photos. The tree is likely a teenager. According to the Ohio State University Extension the tulip tree “often does not flower until it reaches at least 15 years of age, and even then only sparsely in the uppermost reaches of the tree, making the upright-held flowers more difficult to notice and appreciate.
As promised,here’s our final batch of photos of the day from Joe Koscielny taken during Sunday’s Bergen Audubon walk at DeKorte. Here we’ve got some great wildlife and plant-life shots. Thanks again Joe!
