Jim Wright: Meadowlands and More Zoom Talk

This past Saturday (Aug. 8) former Meadowlands Commission staffer Jim Wright gave an engaging, info-packed talk for Bergen County Camera on his new book, “The Real James Bond.” The non-fiction work tells the story of the original James Bond, an ornithologist whose namesake was later adapted for the big screen’s most famous spy. 

His talk also included a hefty dose of Meadowlands subjects, including DeKorte Park, Mill Creek Marsh, “The Nature of the Meadowlands” book and the Meadowlands Nature Blog. View Jim’s discussion here
