This free two-hour guided nature walk will take us to the legendary Harrier Meadow  in North Arlington.

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.
