Gabrielle Bennett-Meany to Speak On Kingsland Overlook Improvement Project at Next Wednesday's (Feb. 19) BCAS Meeting

Join New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority Authority Senior Natural Resource Specialist/Parks Supervisor Gabrielle Bennett-Meany next Wednesday (Feb. 19) at the Bergen County Audubon Society’s monthly meeting as she gives a talk on the Habitat Improvement Project at Kingsland Overlook in DeKorte Park.

The Kingsland Overlook was one of the earliest parks on a landfill. It was designed to encompass a variety of habitats attractive to a broad range of birds and other wildlife. Over the years invasive plants had begun to colonize throughout the Kingsland Overlook Trail, growing in either dense stands or sparsely throughout the area.

Providing a sustainable habitat begins with the plants. Native diversity can be increased by selectively adding plants. Through generous grants from the BCAS, Gaby and her NJSEA parks team has enhanced areas along the Kingsland Overlook Trail and re-established stands of native greases, flowers, shrubs and trees.

Gabrielle Bennett-Meany is a Senior Natural Resource Specialist, Open Space Manager Specialist at the New Jersey Sports and Exhibition Authority (NJSEA), formerly the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission. She has been employed there for 25 years.

Business Meeting at 7:30pm. Programs begin at 8pm. All are welcome. Teaneck Creek: 20 Puffin Way, Teaneck. For more info contact Don Torino at greatauk4@gmail.com or 201-230-4983.
