BCAS Donation to Help Meadowlands Museum Butterfly Garden

Bergen County Audubon Society President Don Torino and Meadowlands Museum Vice President Carol Kowalski

The Bergen County Audubon Society recently presented a check for $1,000 to the Meadowlands Museum to continue work on its Butterfly Garden.

The non-profit Meadowlands Museum, located at 91 Crane Ave. in Rutherford, works to link students of New Jersey Meadowlands history, young and old, to objects that can help them connect to and understand the history the Meadowlands area communities of today. The Museum was founded in 1960 by a group of Rutherford PTA parents.

The Meadowlands Museum’s current exhibits include “Against the Grain: Notable Women of the Meadowlands.” The Museum is open to the public on Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm and by appointment. For more on the Meadowlands Museum click here
