The Meadowlands Commission was proud to play host to the Watoto Children's Choir from beleaguered Uganda on Monday. This internationally known choir, composed of orphans, wanted to see local nature on a day off aduring their six-month North American tour.
Meadowlands Naturalist Gabrielle Bennett-Meany (blue coat, above) gave the 17 young singers and their team a walk along the Marsh Discovery Trail and a visit to the Environment Center's Discovery Station in the afternoon.
At night, John Sloan of the McDowell Observatory gave them a look through the research-grade, optical telescope.
The choir is giving a free concert in Kearny tonight (Tuesday, Nov. 18).
