With another snowstorm underway, keep in mind that you can go cross-country skiing on the trails at DeKorte Park and in the Carillon area and beyond on Disposal Road.
Sorry for the delay in posting this, but we had a few technical issues and other glitches. Don Torino of the Bergen County Audubon Society reports:
"Our Super Bird Sunday walk had nearly three dozen participants — and several 'good' birds — including Hoodies, Bufflehead, Canvasbacks, Northern Harrier and Cooper's Hawk, to name a few.
"We had promised gift bags to the first person to see a bird named after an NFL team — Eagle, Falcon, Cardinal, Seahawk, etc. Alas, the raptors were on the thin side, so we gave out one gift bag to the first person to see a male cardinal (left), and another gift bag to the first person to see a female cardinal."
The gift bags included free two-hour eco-cruises on the Hackensack River later this year, limited-edition Peter Max Meadowlands posters and other goodies.
Part of the Meadowlands Commission's mission is to boost both the economy and the environment by pushing for renewable energy. To that end, the commission announced three initiatives yesterday at its monthly meeting.
