Free Nature Walk ‘n’ Talk Today (Friday)

IMG_9097-1 Looking for a great way to beat the “Black Friday” day-after-Thanksgiving shopping crush? 

Visit the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s DeKorte Park for a free “Green Friday” guided nature walk and talk today, beginning at 10 a.m. outside the Meadowlands Environment Center.

As of Wednesday afternoon, there was 30 percent chance of rain, so please dress accordingly!

Today's event, sponsored by the NJMC and the Bergen County Audubon Society, will feature a walk on DeKorte Park’s Marsh Discovery Trail and other nearby trails, followed by a bring-your-own-lunch talk and slide show featuring some of the amazing critters that live in the Meadowlands. All of the photos are from this blog, and range from a Bald Eagle to (arguably) the world's most amazing Grasshopper shot.

The walk runs from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. We have been seeing yellowlegs, harriers and five or six types of ducks.

The brown-bag lunch is from noon to 1 p.m. in the Meadowlands Environment Center’s Visitor Center, which offers great views of DeKorte Park’s Shorebird Pool and the Manhattan skyline.
