Third-Tuesday-of-the-Month Bird Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
This free walk starts with a bird-banding demonstration by NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse at the entrance to Harrier Meadow in North Arlington – where you’ll learn all about why  the commission bands birds and  what it has learned,  and you’ll get some amazing up-close looks at birds. We’ll then walk around the 70-acre natural area, which is normally closed to the public, and look for herons, egrets, shorebirds, and ospreys and other raptors. Harrier Meadow is on  Disposal Road near Schuyler Avenue.  The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check for last-minute 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 or call 201-230-4983.
