2011 in Review: October

We thought we'd celebrate by looking back at 2011, month by month.

Sunday: Free New Year’s Day Walk at Mill Creek

Jump-start your year list on New Year's Day with a free guided walk at Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus. The two-hour walk, sponsored by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society, begins at 10 a.m. and will be held on wide, flat paths with lots of great spots to see wintering waterfowl and raptors.

You'll be required to sign a standard liability release, good for NJMC/BCAS events throughout the year. You can download the release here:
