Meadowlands Festival of Birding: Mark Your Calendars

IMG_7658-1    The sixth annual Meadowlands Festival of Birding will be held on Saturday,  Sept. 12, and  Sunday, Sept.13. This nifty event features pontoon-boat tours of the Hackensack River, bird walks and great Sunday field trips.
   Once again, NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse will give an illuminating bird-banding demonstration at Harrier Meadow on Saturday morning.

   The event is organized and sponsored by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, the Hackensack River keeper, and the New Jersey Audubon Society. Riverkeeper link, with more on the festival, is here.
