Schedule: Talks will be at 10:00 am and 11:30 am with walks following immediately after. The talks and walks are free. There is a 60 person capacity for each talk/walk. Click here to register.
The talks will focus on everything you need to know to start your birding adventures. Discussion topics include What Is Birding? How to Better ID Birds, Birding Optics, Field Guides, and more. Following the talks, BCAS members will give a guided walk of the park, a premier spot for great birding.

Earlier today members of the NJSEA Natural Resources Department and the Bergen County Audubon Society met at Losen Slote Creek Park in Little Ferry. Together they cleared fallen trees and branches from this month’s storm that blocked the trails and opened up overgrown trails. Great teamwork BCAS and NJSEA!
