Joy in Mudville — at last!


   The Meadowlands Commission has been trying to draw down the Shorebird   Pool at DeKorte Park for a few weeks now, IMG_7729-1but has encountered several challenges that hampered the effort.

   All that changed this afternoon. The Shorebird Pool is mostly mudflats now, and we are getting a slew of waders and shorebirds. We only wish we could have gotten the water levels down sooner.

  The water has been pumped out so that repairs can be done to the pilings that support the Meadwolands Commission's water's-edge buildings.

   With a little luck, mud levels should be like this for a couple of weeks. Come see for yourself!
