Meadowlands Events This Week

Long-eared owl
Each Monday, we post the upcoming events for the Meadowlands Commission and the Meadowlands Environment Center  through the upcoming weekend.

This week’s main event is a program on owls — on Sunday at 1 p.m. in the MEC. (The Long-eared Owl above was photographed in the Meadowlands a few years back.)

Details follow.

Sunday, Nov. 17, 1 – 2:30 p.m.
Cedar Run Owls – All ages
Are you as wise as an owl? Find out up close with staff from the Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge. They’ll be bringing some of their tree-dwelling creatures, including  Reggie, an eastern screech owl  brought to Cedar Run after an injury caused permanent blindness in her left eye. The Burlington County-based refuge includes  a federally and state licensed hospital facility that cares for nearly 4,000 injured, orphaned or displaced native wild animals each year.
