Mickey Raine ventured out to DeKorte this past Sunday and found Egrets, Red-winged blackbirds, Cedar Waxwing and even a Bald Eagle flying overhead.As a bonus we’ve included a Fiddler Crab Mickey photographed at Mill Creek Marsh last Tuesday.
Wanted to take the opportunity to commend and congratulate Wyckoff Girl Scout Troop 94686, who just dedicated a new butterfly garden in their town, the culmination of a year’s worth of work. The garden is located in Russell Farms Community Park in the township.
The girls earned their Bronze Awards for creating the garden that will grow Milkweed, the sole plant that provides food for caterpillars that turn into Monarch butterflies and the only place adult Monarchs will lay eggs.
As one scout said, “The monarchs are so pretty and graceful. They are a symbol of happiness and hope.” Read an article on the scouts here.
