Richard W. DeKorte Park

Saturday, July 13, 2024

A birder's meetup

Meet in the parking lot by the Meadowlands Environmental Center. 


DeKorte Park features 3.5 miles of level walking paths through the Hackensack Meadowlands, leading to a variety of herons, ducks, shorebirds, gulls, terns, and passerines. We’ll walk taround the Shorebird Pool and from Lyndhurst Nature Reserve to Saw Mill Flats. If time allows, we’ll drive to the Amvets Carillon to scan the Teal Pool and surrounding area. Some of the birds we hope to see are the black skimmer, least tern,

black-crowned night heron, least and semipalmated sandpipers, and bald eagle.


Bring binoculars and a scope, if you have one, as well as water and a snack. It is likely to be hot and sunny, so a sunhat, sunscreen, and insect repellent are recommended. There is a porta-san in the parking lot where we will meet.


A map and brochure are available here. From the Montclair area, take Route 3 east to the Polito Avenue/Orient Way exit. Continue straight onto Polito Avenue. At the stop sign, turn left onto Valley Brook Avenue. Follow Valley Brook approximately 1.5 miles to its end. Cross the railroad tracks and enter the park on your left. Bear right into the parking lot at the guard house.
