Bald eagle
   We have had quite a few Bald eagle sightings in and around DeKorte Park in the past couple of weeks. Ada Baisre actually got a photo of one. Thanks for sharing, Ada.

HELP WANTED: Meadowlands Oral Histories

   The NJMC wants you!!
   As we celebrate our 40th Anniversary, the Meadowlands Commission is looking for input from the public.

    The oral history project provides an opportunity for members of the community Mosquito 1900 Dike Sepiato contribute their recollections about the Meadowlands District, and help us tell the full story of this incredible place.

    To participate, we invite you to share your memories of this area – either in writing, or on film or by audio. If you want to send us an e-mail, or a video or audio clip, or copy of an archival photo, please use the address listed below.

    You can also send us a letter the “old fashioned” way, to our headquarters in DeKorte Park (also below). Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope if you want any material to be returned.

     Whatever form you choose, we’d love to hear from you! The stories we collect will be posted at this link on our Web site for everyone to enjoy and may be compiled into a book, later in the year.

    Thanks for your interest – we look forward to sharing the results!

     E-mails, audio and  video files and digital images of archival photos should be sent to:
