Earth Day at DeKorte

Thanks to all who braved the weather today for a variety of events — bird walk, a couple of talks and a bird-watching for beginners class on optics, courtesy of Bergen County Audubon Society..

A few folks on the morning walk were quoted in a nice Earth Day roundup in The Record. The link is here.

We had 32 species on the walk, including a Marsh Wren, three swallow species and Forster's Terns. Full list tomorrow.

Happy Earth Day!
