Considering that the Meadowlands is great place for birding no wonder the 6th Annual New Jersey Meadowlands Festival of Birding is taking place on September 12-13th.

It is an all day event with so many things to do you will want to do them all.

Some of the activities that the festival will entail are birding walks, eco-cruises in the Meadowlands, guided paddling tours, and a keynote presentation by Dr. Robert DeCandido on “Migration at the Top of the Empire State Building.”
The festival will also have indoor programs including birding basics, nature of New Jersey, all about butterflies, and a live raptor presentation.
