The presentation will include some seldom-seen aerials of the region from 75 years ago — in addition to Don’s incredible knowledge of the region’s marshes (which he explored as a boy).
Did you know that at high tide, there is more open water in the Meadowlands now than in the 1930s? You’ll learn why on Sunday.
Information on Don’s talk follows.
Sunday, March 16, 1-2:30 p.m. (MEC)
