Native Plant Day a Tremendous Success!

A huge thank you from the NJSEA and the Bergen County Audubon Society to the 200 people who came to our first annual Meadowlands Native Plant Day yesterday (June 30)! Visitors experienced native plants in all facets, from guided walk of DeKorte Park to expert talks and visiting tables of local native plant and nature groups.

Special thanks to BCAS President Don Torino and NJSEA Parks Coordinator Gabrielle Bennett-Meany, pictured above, whose tireless dedication to raising awareness of the importance of native plans has improved the quality of life for many a pollinator! Thanks also to the BCAS for their generous donations throughout the years that have been used to increase the number and diversity of native flora in DeKorte Park!
