We hope you can join us at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday) for a free two-hour guided walk of Harrier Meadow in North Arlington, but be advised that lightning or thunder cancels the event. Please check this blog; we will post updates as appropriate at 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.
The 70-acre natural area, usually closed to the public, is a great place to see migrating shorebirds and Ospreys like the one above, photographed on our April 19 guided walk.
Always bring water, bug spray and sunblock (overly optismistic, huh?).
Full information follows.
