Don't miss our third annual Mother's Day walk in Ridgefield. The two-hour walk includes a trip to the Ridgefield Nature Center (at right; think warblers and a scarlet tanager if we're lucky), a visit to Skeetkill Creek Marsh andan optional stop to see the Monk Parakeets who nest on a bridge next to Railroad Avenue (above),
We had some great birds, including that tanager last year.
The blog post from last year, including bird list and photos, is here.

Special Mother’s Day Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
Our third annual Mother’s Day Walk begins at the Ridgefield Nature Center in Ridgefield. The free, two-hour walk includes a walk around the 5.4 acre center (once the home of the Great Bear Bottled Water Co.), and a visit to Skeetkill Creek Marsh in Ridgefield, with a stop to see the Monk Parakeets on the way. We’ll meet at the Ridgefield Nature Center at 10 a.m. (directions are on meadowblog.net in the left-hand column). The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for last-minute weather updates. You will have to sign a standard liability release for this event.
