Due to cleanup efforts at Mill Creek Marsh, we are moving November's Third Tuesday walk to Laurel Hill County Park in Secaucus.
The event runs from 10 a.m. to noon. We'll all park near the ballfields "under" the cliffs. Directions are in the left-hand column of this blog.
A quick scouting trip last week yielded 16 Brant, three Red-tails, a Northern Harrier, plenty of gulls and Double-crested Cormorants, and a zillion Grackles and dark-eyed Juncos.
(We thank the Hudson County Parks Department for letting us use the park on short notice!)
Tuesday, Nov. 20, 10 a.m.
Third-Tuesday-of-the-Month Nature Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
Because of Hurricane Sandy, this month’s walk has been moved to Laurel Hill County Park in Secaucus. We’ll look for ravens, raptors, waterfowl on the Hackensack River, and any other birds we can find. We’ll meet at the big parking lot by the Laurel Hill ball fields at 10 a.m. The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for directions and last-minute weather updates. 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.
