Barn Swallow Thinking About Nesting?

As some folks know, Barn Swallows like to nest in a certain spot in DeKorte Park where folks can actually see the nest.

As of last week, this was the closest we have seen to activity there. The Barn Swallows typically nest under the Marshview Pavilion.

The Marsh Hawks’ Goal: New Native Plant Garden

Native plant garden-001
The legendary Meadowlands Marsh Hawks are competing in the World Series of Birding this Saturday, in part to raise money for a new native plant garden for birds and butterflies by the AmVets Carillon on Disposal Road.

We already have a design for this wonderful new place — with plants including Bayberry, Buttonbush, Spicebush, Blog-header2Red Twig Dogwood, Inkberry "Shamrock," Nannyberry and Cornus Seneca.

Your donation to the Marsh Hawks will help this dream garden come true.

For more information on supporting the Marsh Hawks, download the Pledge Sheet here: Download Pledge sheet

Or e-mail Team Captain Mike Newhouse at michael.newhouse (at) njmeadowlands.gov.

If you contribute $25 or more, you will have a chance to win a spiffy official Meadowlands Marsh Hawks cap and T shirt.

Make checks payable to the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and send them to Mike Newhouse, NJMC, One DeKorte Park Plaza, Lyndhurst 07071.
