On Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 8 p.m., the Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society are presenting a free talk and slide show on the new coffee-table book, "The Nature of the Meadowlands," in the Meadowlands Environment Center in DeKorte Park.
The event will feature author/photographer Jim Wright and photographers Marco Van Brabant and Ron Shields.
The lavishly illustrated, 128-page coffee-table book illuminates the region's natural and unnatural history — from its darkest days of a half-century ago to its environmental revival.
Wright will give a slide-show/talk featuring highlights from the book, which combines striking nature photography with rare archival images.
Nature photographers Marco Van Brabant and Ron Shields will also talk about some of their amazing images from the book.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. The talk, sponsored by the Bergen County Audubon Society, will begin at 8 p.m., following a BCAS meeting that starts at 7:30.
The event will take place in the Meadowlands Environment Center in DeKorte Park, Lyndhurst. To RSVP, contact Don Torino of the BCAS at email@example.com or 201-230-4983.
