Don’t Forget: Butterfly Day on July 25

In conjunction with a brand-new (and free) Butterfly Guide to DeKorte Park, the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission is sponsoring a free one-day butterfly fest on Sunday, July 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
   In addition to butterfly walks for the whole family, there’ll be a lside show on the Butterfly of DeKorte Park, tables with loads of information on butterfly identification, binoculars and gardening to attract butterflies – plus contests, scavenger hunts and great door prizes.
   Bring your own picnic lunch and beverage.
   The event is co-sponsored by the Bergen County Audubon Society and the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association.
