We lowered the water levels in the Shorebird Pool at DeKorte Park this week in preparation for Kevin Karlson Day this Saturday. We are already getting lots of peeps and yellowlegs — and Ospreys that like fishing in the shallow water.
More info on Kevin Karlson Day — free and open to the public — is here.
Above, an NJMC naturalist closes one of the tidegates that helps regulate water levels in the Kingsland Impoundment, a.k.a. the Shorebird Pool, right outside the Environment Center.
Note: When the Marsh Discovery Trail opens this week, it will be open only part way. Because of extensive damage to one part of the trail, it is no longer a loop. You will have to turn around instead of walking all the way to the Transco Trail.
