To celebrate the arrival of spring, the Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society are holding a special walk this Sunday at 10 a.m. at Laurel Hill County Park in Secaucus. Directions are in the left-hand column.
We are working on an alternate location for the walk on Sunday, April 4. It had been scheduled for Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus, but that site is closed for storm repairs at least until mid-April. We will post information on the new site for the April 4 walk here.
Details about this Sunday's walk are below.(Above photo was taken from top of Laurel Hill, looking out at ballfields, the Hackensack River and Saw Mill Creek Wildlife Management Area.)
Sunday, March 21, 10 a.m.

We meet at the big parking lot by the Laurel Hill ballfields at 10 a.m. Or meet at the first parking lot in DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst at 9:20.
