The 70-acre site — usually off limits to the public — features ponds and tidal impoundments and shorebirds aplenty. Lots of butterflies and dragonflies, too. A young Little Blue Heron and a Pied-billed Grebe were seen there last week, but if things are slow we may head over to DeKorte Park and check the Marsh Discovery Trail for neat stuff.
Full listing follows.

Third-Tuesday-of-the-Month Nature Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
This free two-hour guided nature walk will take us to the legendary Harrier Meadow in North Arlington. We meet at 10 a.m. at the entrance to Harrier Meadow on Disposal Road. You can also meet us at the visitors’ parking lot at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst at 9:30 a.m. and we can carpool. The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for last-minute updates and weather advisories. You will have to sign a standard liability release that is good for NJMC/BCAS events throughout the year. To rsvp, contact Don Torino of the BCAS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-230-4983.
