Birds and Butterflies Walk This Tuesday

IMG_0509Don’t forget about our Third Tuesday Nature Walk on July 21 from 10 a.m. to noon in DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. This walk has a special focus on birds and butterflies. We’ll look for swallows, herons, and other birds of interest as well as butterflies and plants that attract them.

For those who have never participated in a NJSEA-BCAS nature walk, all experience levels are welcome. The walks are guided and we have spotting scopes so that you can see the birds and mallards up-close. Once you’ve been on one walk, you’ll be hooked! To register click here.

Scenes from an NJSEA Pontoon Boat Tour

Many thanks to John Pastore for this video footage from an NJSEA Pontoon Boat cruise she attended last week. Says John:

“Myself and a couple of buddies took a boat trip on July 8th. With Angelo Urato at the helm, and Gaby Bennett-Meany providing narration about what we were seeing, it was a delightful trip. Everyone in North Jersey should take this cruise. It is a great way to get a new perspective on a part of our state that gets a bad rap, and is badly misunderstood.”

Thanks John, and we know you’re just kidding with the “Dirty River” title!
