Saturday events

   Two programs of note will be at the Meadowlands Environment Center this Saturday. Here are the descriptions:

Recycling Revisited

Saturday, March 21, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Ages 10 and up, including adults

   One of the simplest things every citizen can do to conserve natural resources is comply with your local recycling program, but many people DO NOT contribute to the recycling system correctly and may or may not "close the loop" so necessary to encourage recycling.

   In this informative session, we will review the life-cycle of a package as it goes through the entire recycling loop and what our roles are as citizens. We'll point out how to avoid "overcycling" while encouraging recycling and upcycling through your shopping choices.

$5/person, $4 for members


Saturday, March 21, 1 p.m.

All ages

     Go batty with NJ's own Batman, Joseph D'Angeli, and get up-close and personal with LIVE BATS! Throughout the world, bats have been misunderstood and persecuted, causing a serious decline in the bat population.

    Join Mr. D'Angeli as he explains and dispels the many myths of these most important nocturnal creatures.
