First Sunday-of-the-Month Bird Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
Enjoy early April out of doors by joining us on this free two-hour guided nature walk in DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. We’ll walk around parts of the park, looking for spring arrivals, Bald Eagles and other birds. The first person to see or hear a wren gets a NJMC Pontoon boat cruise for two or a copy of “The Nature of the Meadowlands.” All participants will receive 20 percent off coupons to the Tideland Treasures gift shop. The walk starts at 10 a.m. outside the Meadowlands Environment Center. The walk is run by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for last-minute weather updates. You will have to sign a standard liability release that is good for NJMC/BCAS events throughout the year.
