Today’s Walk: Great Way to Begin June

Great day, great folks, great birds — can’t think of a better way to start a new month than with a Bergen County Audubon Society/Meadowlands Commission walk.

A big thanks to the Black Skimmers for showing up and showing off.

And thanks to all who attended the reception for our “Nature of the Meadowlands” show in the Flyway Gallery after the walk.

Full bird list tomorrow.

Observatory Schedule for June

IMG_5829The William D. McDowell Observatory in DeKorte Park has an exciting month of programming in June — beginning Monday night.

Free public access is from 9 to 10:30 on Monday and Wednesday nights this month — weather permitting, of course.

Dress for the weather; with the dome open, you are basically outside.

Each evening at least two major objects in the night sky will be viewed, plus one or two other celestial objects or events depending on the observing conditions.
