More than 40 nature enthusiasts traversed Mill Creek Point Park in Secaucus this past Sunday, viewing Red-Tailed hawks, Marsh Wrens, Snowy Egrets, osprey and more during a nature walk led by the Bergen County Audubon Society and the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority. Some elusive clapper rails were heard but not seen.
Don’t fret if you missed out. Our next guided walk, which focuses on birds and butterflies, is Tuesday, July 21, from 10 a.m. to noon at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst.
Speaking of butterflies, don’t miss our Sixth Annual Butterfly Day on Sunday, July 26, also at DeKorte Park, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event includes a full day of butterfly walks and free kids activities including a scavenger hunt, face painting, Butterfly Costume Contest (for kids 12 and under) and butterfly crafts. Experts will be onsite to help you identify these winged marvels.
