We had a report over the weekend of a man with a net trying to catch butterflies near one of the parking lots at DeKorte Park.
If you see anyone trying to catch butterflies, please tell a security guard.
The Meadowlands Commission has been working hard to attract more and more butterflies to DeKorte Park for the public's enjoyment and education — not for people to take with them.
The park rules are clear on this: “No person shall disturb wildlife or vegetation in any manner” and “It is illegal to remove any natural resource… from the park.”
Butterflies at DeKorte are free, but not for collecting. Thanks for your help on this.
