Photographers Wanted!

As we reviewed the Meadowlands Nature Blog posts from this past year, we realized just how many awesome images we posted from nature photographers.

In an effort to showcase these talents, and to get more folks to appreciate the natural beauty of the Meadowlands, we are going to try a new feature: "Monday Photographer Showcase."

We invite photographers to send in three of their favorite Meadowlands images, a brief bio, a little squib about why they love photographing here, and a link to their online pages.

Images must be from the Meadowlands, and should be around 150K. If you don't watermark them, we'll add a copyright for you.

Email your photos to jim.wright@njmeadowlands.gov, and feel free to suggest ways to make the showcase better. We'll give it a try, and keep it going for as long as there's interest out there.

Looking Back: July 2012

The year 2012 in the Meadowlands marked the opening of River Barge Park in Carlstadt, Butterfly Day and Moth Night, lots of great nature sightings, our continued partnership with Bergen County Audubon Society, and (alas) Hurricane Sandy.

We thought we'd remember 2012 by looking back, month by month.

Here are some highlights from July (click on the text to link to the post):
