On Thanksgiving (Thursday, Nov. 25), all facilities will be closed but the park itself and trails will be open.

Next Monday, for example, three planets — Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune — should be in view.

One of the videos is about the Marsh Discovery Trail (taken when the water levels were low in August, above). Another is on Harrier Meadow and Mill Creek Marsh. A third is on an NJMC DiamondbackTerrapin banding project, and two others feature the Hackensack Riverkeeper. Your feedback is welcome.
