The walk, sponsored by the Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society, begins at 10 a.m. at the trail's entrance, just off Park Plaza Drive. (Directions are on the left-hand side of this blog.)
Mickey Raine, a photographer and friend of this blog, writes: "In case some of these folks are first-time visitors at Mill Creek Marsh, I am attaching some photos — most people have no clue as to just how beautiful MCM is." (Thanks, Mickey!)

First-Sunday-of-the-Month Nature Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus is a great place to see raptors and waterfowl – and those amazing ancient cedar stumps. We meet at the trail’s entrance, just off Park Plaza Drive. You can also meet us at the visitors’ parking lot at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst at 9:30 a.m. and 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.
