Edith Wallace: Feeding Birds and Caterpillars at DeKorte Park with Native Plants
The Meadowlands. From garbage dump to Environmental Center. What was once considered worthless space is now 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 the Kingsland Overlook and Lyndhurst Nature Preserve. We will look at some of these plants and their contributions to wildlife.
May 19, 2017 - 8 PM (Third Friday of the month) Allendale Borough Hall
Bats - Past, Present and Future, with Bat Man Joe D’Angeli
NJ’s own Batman, Joe D’Angeli of the Wildlife Conservation & Education Center in Ridgefield Park will speak about Bats - Past, Present and Future. The talk will include the myths and misunderstandings associated with their maligned unfortunate past, the current status of bats with regards to diseases and disorders, and how the future looks for bats. Joe is a NJ State licensed chiroptologist, and his facility is dedicated to the conservation of bats and all wildlife, and to educating the public on the importance of these truly magnificent flying mammals. Joe will be bringing his LIVE BATS to the presentation.
