New Harrier Meadow Planting

DSCN0067-002On Friday, Oct. 3, the  Meadowlands Commission planted 51 native shrubs in the Harrier Meadow Natural Area in North Arlington.

The plantings include black chokeberry, red twig dogwood, winterberry and arrowwood viburnum. Harrier Meadow is a 70-acre restricted natural area with three tidal impoundments.

It is open to the public only for guided nature walks conducted by the NJMC and Bergen County Audubon Society.

The next Harrier Meadow walk is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 2, from 10 a.m. to noon.

The plantings were paid for from donations collected by the NJMC’s World Series of Birding team, the Meadowlands Marsh Hawks. A big thank you to the Marsh Hawks — Mike Newhouse of the NJMC, Chris Takacs, and Mike Wolfe — and all the fine folks who donated to the Marsh Hawks’ efforts.
