Kevin Watson's Peru Talk and Slide Show Is Friday

Tomorrow (Wednesday): My First High Mountain Talk

IMG_1681Find out more about the High Mountain Park Preserve, one of the great spots to hike and enjoy nature in North Jersey's backyard. The preserve, located in nearby Passaic County, offers great views to the east as well as 11.5 miles of hiking trails -- with a few birds to enjoy along the way.

Jim Wright, birding columnist for The Record and author of a new e-book about Duke Farms' Bald Eagles, will talk about this 1,260-acre patch of forest in a free talk for the Bergen County Audubon Society on Jan. 20.

The 40-minute talk will include recent nature shots, aerial photography and archival images. (The photo above was taken for The Nature Conservancy last October with the help of LightHawk.)

Jim is the author of four photography-driven books about cherished natural areas, from Hawk Mountain in Pennsylvania to New Jersey's Meadowlands. He has been photographing the preserve for the past five years.

The talk, open to the public, begins right after the 7:30 p.m. business meeting at the  Teaneck Creek Conservancy, 20 Puffin Way, Teaneck.
