Introducing Myself – Lisa Cameron

I am honored to have been asked to carry on the Meadowlands Nature Blog, following the departure of its founder, Jim Wright. My background is in fine art and Landscape Architecture, so my perspective will be somewhat different from Jim’s. Landscape Architecture is part ecology, part urban planning, part site engineering, part horticulture, part social work and part poetry. It is an integrative art, and I hope to write about the nature of the meadowlands in a integrated way.

I welcome comments and suggestions from readers. Let’s explore this unique environment together.

    Welcome to the Meadowlands Nature Blog Lisa. I’ve enjoyed participating in and watching the growth of the blog over the past few years and wish you the best of luck going forward. There is so much beauty in the N.J. Meadowlands and so much interesting subject matter that I’m sure you will be very successful in carrying on with the blog and putting your own artistic mark on it.

    Welcome Lisa! I’m looking forward to reading your version of the blog. That’s a beautiful painting of the Skyway and Meadowlands.

    Hey, Lisa . . . It’ll be interesting to see your perspective on things, especially coming from a background of art. We, too, often look at the natural environment and wildlife from an artistic slant, for there is no beauty like that offered in nature. The great thing about places like DeKorte Park and Mill Creek Marsh, not to mention, Mill Creek Point, the Carlstadt River Barge, and Laurel Hill Park, is that the man-made end of the landscape ties in beautifully with the natural surroundings, so even if there are very little in terms of wildlife activity on any particular outing, one can always appreciate the wonderful landscape scenery over the seasons. The “Magic Hour” late in the day, and even early morning, can be quite breathtaking. This month, with snow covering the ground for a large portion of the time, is usually a nice time to see the lovely side of snow, away from the headaches and problems it creates in urban living.
