The Montclair Bird Club invites the public to attend a special program on the Nature of the Meadowlands on Wednesday, October 12 at 7:30 p.m. Jim Wright, a local writer, photographer, lecturer and field trip leader will present the history, restoration and wildlife of this often under-appreciated region.
Jim Wright (pictured) writes the Meadowlands Nature Blog for the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, leads bird walks, writes nature columns for North Jersey newspapers, and is an acclaimed photographer of the Meadowlands Region. He is currently writing a coffee-table book on the Meadowlands, and is the author of several books, including “Hawk Mountain” and “Jungle of the Maya.” The program will include some very special and up-close photographs of the Northern Harrier, a resident raptor of the Meadowlands.
The Montclair Bird Club was founded in 1921 and sponsors field trips for all levels of birding. Regular meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month (except December, July and August) at the Union Congregational Church, 176 Cooper Avenue, Upper Montclair. All meetings are open to the public. For further information, contact Wayne Greenstone 908-276-4605 or visit Montclair Bird Club.
