Each day this week we’ll be posting photos from Mickey Raine spotlighting a variety of wildlife during his recent visits to the Meadowlands. Today we’ve got Forster’s Terns and Great Egrets from DeKorte Park. Check back tomorrow for more egrets and gulls from Mill Creek Marsh. Thanks Mickey!
Check out an exhibit on “Rare Wildlife Revealed” at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum In July. The show, which runs through July 30, features paintings by James Fiorentino and is presented in concert with the Conserve Wildlife Foundation. There’s a video on the exhibit here

BCAS President Don Torino had a great letter to the editor in yesterday’s Record. Words of wisdom to start your week:
As a person that leads local nature walks almost every weekend I can attest first hand to the wonderful positive effects being a part of nature and in nature has on everyone who just manages to spend a few hours a week walking our local parks and nature centers.
We are blessed to have great places like the Meadowlands, Teaneck Creek and many more oases that are close to home, sometimes in walking distance to many people who live in the most densely populated state.
We need to keep connected to and utilize our nature preserves so that we better understand how to protect them in the future and in doing so we can lead happier and healthier lives for ourselves, our families and for future generations.
