We did tally 24 species, with nine flavors of duck, including the Lesser Scaup above.
And we were treated to a Winter Solstice talk and slide show by Laura Venner and her team at the MEC Auditorium, which featured a small-scale version of Stonehenge and lots of interesting info on solstices.
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.
