Edith Wallace: Feeding Birds and Caterpillars
with Native Plants at DeKorte Park
The Meadowlands -- from garbage dump to environmental renaissance. DeKorte Park, built at the edge of a landfill, was once considered worthless space. Now it's a wildlife preserve.
If we are to attract animals we must have food for them: plants. The initial plantings in DeKorte Park were primarily native plants. Recently the Bergen County Audubon Society has contributed many native plants to DeKorte Park's Kingsland Overlook and Lyndhurst Nature Preserve.
We will look at some of these plants and their contributions to wildlife.
Edith Wallace, botanist extraordinaire, tells all. Her talk is free and open to the public.
