Third-Tuesday-of-the-Month Bird Walk with NJMC and BCAS
This free two-hour guided nature walk will take us to the legendary Harrier Meadow in North Arlington, beginning with a bird-banding demonstration. The 70-acre site, usually off limits to the public, features ponds and tidal impoundments and birds aplenty. We have seen Blue-winged Teal and a Little Blue Heron this month, plus plenty of shorebirds. We meet at 10 a.m. at the entrance to Harrier Meadow on Disposal Road. You can also meet us at the visitors’ parking lot at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst at 9:45 a.m. and we can carpool. The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for last-minute updates and weather advisories.
