Butterfly Day at DeKorte Park is receiving some great media coverage!

Michael Copley of The Record wrote in part:

While families and others were able to take in the winged-wonders under a blue sky, butterfly day also was a showcase of the environmental restoration that’s transformed the Meadowlands from a dump into a sanctuary.

“The day is about celebrating the environment here,” said Don Torino of the Bergen County Audubon Society. “The butterfly is like the canary in the coal mine – it’s a good way of demonstrating what the area has become.”     The link Michael Copley's article in The Record's is here.

"Fostering that kinship between families and nature is one of the goals of Butterfly Day in DeKorte Park, held on a sunny Sunday by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission. The Smilon family was among more than 400 visitors expected at the park. [Note: The event ultimately drew more than 650 people.]

Finally, there's a terrific video by Colleen Hagerty on NY1 — the link is here.
