Sunday: Free ‘Back to Football’ Walk @ DeKorte

FinalEgretFootball_MedStart the fall birding season with a free, NFL-themed “Back to Football” Bird Walk at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst this Sunday (Sept. 1) at 10 a.m.

The guided, two-hour walk, sponsored by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission (NJMC) and the Bergen County Audubon Society (BCAS), has a special National Football League theme – and up to eight nifty prizes.

To celebrate the opening week of the 2014 season, we’re offering prizes to the first person on the walk who sees any bird species with the same name as a pro-football team: Cardinal, Raven, Falcon, Eagle, Seahawk (Osprey), Giant (Great) Egret, Giant (great) Blue Heron, and Woodpacker (boo Don Torino on that one).  All seven team bird species can be seen in the park.

The walk meets outside the Meadowlands Environment Center. Check for 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 or 201-230-4983. The Meadowlands Environment Center’s phone number is 201-777-2431.
