Jersey City Slide Show and Talk

   The Meadowlands Commission's Jim Wright will speak on Winter Raptors, as well as a Brief History of the Meadowlands, in a slide show and talk at noon on Dec. 9 at New Jersey City University in Jersey City.

   Wright, who maintains the Meadowlands Nature Blog for the commission and who does most of the photography for the blog, will discuss and show images of raptors seen in the Meadowlands last winter — including Snowy Owls (including the one above), Bald Eagles and Rough-legged Hawks.

   He'll also discuss the region's amazing environmental comeback, and show some great archival photos as well as new photos.

   “Winter Raptors of the Meadowlands,” free and open to the public, will be held at the New Jersey City University Center for Teaching and Learning, Vodra Hall, Room 143, 2039 Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City. 

   Reservations are required.  For reservations or further information call Dr. Steven Haber, director of NJCU’s Center for Teaching and Learning, at 201-200-3282.
