Another Terrific Butterfly Day

Thanks to everyone who attended the 2nd Annual Butterfly Day at DeKorte Park.P1140018

We had 350 people (including an estimated 175 children),  15 species of butterfly, an awesome Clear-winged Moth, two ravens and a Peregrine Falcon.

We will post a full list tomorrow.

The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission would like to thank Bergen County Audubon Society and the Northern New Jersey Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association for all their help in co-sponsoring this great free, family-friendly event.

Up next: A mid-summer bird count for families and everyone else at DeKorte Park on Sunday, July 31.

If you have photos from today you would like to share, send them to jim.wright (at) meadowblog.gov
