"Bald Eagles and Other Bergen Birds" by nature writer/columnist Jim Wright

Author, columnist and nature photographer Jim Wright will give quick, illustrated talks at 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., about warblers and other birds we'll be seeing the rest of the spring -- with a live, bird's-eye look at Duke Farms' Bald Eagle cam.

"Endangered NJ" - live animal show by Tenafly Nature Center
Learn about the major factors that threaten animals with endangerment and extinction worldwide. Discover how people both directly and indirectly affect the Earth's biodiversity and meet 4 to 5 living examples of species whose populations are being affected by human actions today. Gain an awareness of New Jersey’s 60+ endangered species, and develop solutions to help prevent threats to our local wildlife. 

 

Show at 2 pm by the Tenafly Nature Center table. Meet some of our endangered friends at the table, before and after the show.

Appearances by the Plastic Bag Monster!

Meet and take pictures with our very own Plastic Bag Monster!  The Monster is an ugly reminder to reduce, reuse, and recycle plastic bags, to keep our local environment beautiful.
