2010 in Review: February

The year 2010 marked the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission's 41th anniversary and the continued expansion of our nature programs with Bergen County Audubon Society — including an Earth Day Celebration, a Kearny Marsh Cleanup, a Butterfly Day, a "Green Friday" nature walk, and a talk by Scott Weidensaul.

We thought we'd celebrate by looking back at 2010, month by month.

Here are some highlights from February:

Feb. 2: Groundhog's Day Video

Feb.5: White-crowned Sparrows: Easy To Find

Feb. 14: Great Backyard Bird Count Walk

Feb. 19: Audio recordings of Northern Shrike
