New Feature: Directions to NJMC Sites

     Getting to many of the New Jersey Meadowlands locations can be tough — but we are trying to simplify the task.

   At the upper left-hand corner of this blog, we are posting links via Google Maps that enable you to type in your address and get directions to DeKorte Park in Secaucus and elsewhere.

     Note: With most of these Internet mapping sites, Google maps may not list the best option as the first option. Try alternate suggestions, and look at the map to get a better sense of where you need to go.

Bird Report 111009


    A walk around DeKorte early Monday afternoon found a raft of Ruddies, several Bufflehead and about a dozen Pintails — mostly on the far side of the Marsh Discovery Trail.

   Still a dozen+ yellowlegs on the edges of a little island beyond the Visitor Center.

  Also saw a flock of Cedar Waxwings on the Kingsland Overlook Trail.

  Did not see the Brant at the start of the Saw Mill Creek Trail (near the carillon) but will check again today.
