The Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon are teaming for three great events this month.
We have the annual Kearny Marsh Cleanup this Sunday, a DeKorte Plant Walk on June 10, and a Third-Tuesday Bird Walk at DeKorte Park on June 20.
Info on all three events follows.
Patrick Carney reports:
"I thought this picture that I took in DeKorte Park over the weekend might be good for a blog. It features a Snapping Turtle and the Killdeer who didn't want him there!"
If you have been anywhere near DeKorte Park's Lyndhurst Nature Reserve in recent days, you've noticed the accumulation of cottony seeds all over the place.
They are Cottonwood seeds — more about the tree (pictured at left) and the seeds here.
An earlier post on Cottonwood Catkins is here.
Who's that perched in a tree at Laurel Hill earlier this month?
Another pic or two follows.
