This is the Meadowlands Commission's fifth annual Mother's Day Walk with Bergen County Audubon Society and the Ridgefield Environmental Commission, and it is — as they say in France — a doozie.
We'll start at the Ridgefield Nature Center, once the home of the Great Bear Water Co.
We'll check out the community gardens across the street.
We'll hop in our cars and look at the Ridgefield Monk Parakeets on the way to Skeetkill Creek Marsh.
When we're done, those who would like to see a nearby Bald Eagle nest can follow us to an undisclosed location.
Full info follows.
Sunday, May 12, 10 a.m.
