Ron Shields took this amazing Common Moorhen shot at the Kearny Marsh while kayaking yesterday. (Thanks, Ron!)
The N.J. Meadowlands Commission is pleased to announce that we will soon go to press with a new all-color pamphlet on the Butterflies of "DeKorte Park."
We hope to have them available by Memorial Day. The free pamphlet, aimed at beginning butterflies, features photos of 18 butterfly species and two moth species — all photographed at DeKorte and nearby environs.
The pamphlet honors Jill Ann Ziemkiewicz, the Rutherford resident for whom DeKorte's butterfly garden is named. The 23-year-old lost her life as a member of the crew of TWA Flight 800, which crashed into the Atlantic in July 1996.
