The next Bergen County Audubon Society Meadowlands Nature Walk is this Sunday, March 4, at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. The walk takes place from 10 am to noon. We’ll be looking for raptors and early spring migrants. For more info contact Don Torino at email@example.com or 201-230-4983.
Although one could argue that every native pant is perfect, that each one plays its own unique and intricate role in the eco-system, there is one that is the perfect example of how important our native plants truly are to our overall environment: The Spicebush.
Spicebush ( Lindera benzoin) is the textbook specimen of how native plants support our wildlife in ways that are impossible for the exotic non-natives plants that are introduced everyday in our home landscapes.
