Great Old Meadowlands Film

Back in 1986, The Nature Conservancy produced this eye-opening film about the Meadowlands, back in the day when the region was managed by a state agency called the Hackensack Meadowlands Development Commission.

A friend shared the video, and I thought I'd share it here.

The region was already on the rebound, but those open landfills were real eye-openers.

I recognize several folks (Don Smith!) from when I worked for the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission a decade ago.

It's a great environmental comeback! Long may it continue.

I wish I had seen this video when I wrote The Nature of the Meadowlands. I did not give Paul Ylvisaker and Cliff Goldman the credit they deserve.
