High Mountain Videos

In honor of today's High Mountain walks,  are two YouTube videos worth a look.

The first (above) is all about Franklin Clove, by the late Franklin Lakes historian Jim Longo.

The second, below, is an amazing 360-degree aerial video by Andreas Lauschke for The Nature Conservancy and LightHawk. It gives you a sense of the vastness of the preserve -- and the suburbs nearby.

Help the Meadowlands Marsh Hawks

My ol' Meadowlands buddy Mike Newhouse and his team of crack birders are raising money for Great Egret research in the World Series of Birding on Saturday, May 6.

His team focuses on Bergen County only and does a great job.

A link where you can read more about the World Series and the Marsh Hawks is here.

Edith Wallace's Talk Is Tonight

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.
