Thanks for Making Butterfly Day Such a Success!

DSCN0055Despite threatening skies, yesterday’s Fourth Annual Butterfly Day at DeKorte Park was big hit.

1-IMG_5880Nearly 600 folks attended and got some up-close looks at some cool butterflies, plus face-painting, scavenger hunts, a costume contest, and some nifty information tables to help them better connect with nature.

We will post more pix, links, and full list of butterflies seen yesterday as time allows, but wanted to post a couple of links now.

The Record’s coverage is here.

Photos from yesterday on the website are here.

The Meadowlands Commission would like to thank the Bergen County Audubon Society, the North Jersey chapter of the North American Butterfly Association,and the Lyndhurst E.M.S. for all their help! We’d also like to thank the NJDA-Forest Pest Outreach Program for participating.
