APRIL WALK OF THE MONTH: Harrier Meadow

IMG_3126    On Friday, April 3, five days after the free Birding for Beginners Course at DeKorte NJMC naturalists are leading a free, 90-minute bird walk likely to include an influx of migrating waterfowl, sparrows and maybe some early shorebirds.

   Tree swallows will also be returning and raptors should be in view. A bird-banding demonstration is also possible, depending on migration patterns.

    The 10 a.m. walk is open on a first-come, first-accepted basis, and space is limited.  Please RSVP to Mike Newhouse, 201-460-2002, michael.newhouse@njmeadowlands.gov.

    Click "Continue reading…" for walk details and photos taken just this month at Harrier Meadow.

We will meet at the Harrier Meadow gate, Disposal Road (off Schuyler Avenue), North Arlington.

NOTE: you will be required to sign a limited liability release because the site is typically closed to the general public. (If you are a teacher or member of a nature organization and would like to schedule a special group walk at Harrier Meadow at another time, e-mail Jim.)

    These photos capture for me the serenity of the place. I hope the landfill “hills” can be retained as a natural part of this environment.
