A huge thank you from the NJSEA to Spectrum for Living for the ornate bird houses donated to the Authority last week. Each year several Spectrum for Living locations work on designing wonderful, unique birdhouses. They also donated additional houses that the NJSEA installed in DeKorte Park.

Ironweed to DeKorte via BCAS

Thanks to the Bergen County Audubon Society for its generous donation of Ironweed plants to the NJSEA for use around DeKorte Park. The plant is beneficial to butterflies and caterpillars. Says NJSEA Parks Supervisor Gaby Bennett Meany (pictured above with BCAS President Don Torino): It’s a native to the Meadowlands and there is so little of it growing in the wild that it’s one of my favorites!!!
