Meadowlands Wildlife Photo Walk

Join Bergen County Camera as we walk the trails of Richard W. DeKorte Park with Tamron USA as well as Author and Meadowlands veteran, Jim Wright.

Located within the New Jersey Meadowlands, Richard W. DeKorte Park is an important bird area just seven miles west of New York City. Many threatened and endangered species call this tract of tidal and non-tidal marsh home.

We've planned this walk to offer the greatest variety of species. September is by far the peak of Fall migration in the meadowlands. Shorebird migration is well underway, Great and Snowy Egrets will be congregating in large numbers, and wintering waterfowl are just beginning to arrive. Keep an eye on the sky for passing raptors as well! Osprey, Bald Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks, and Peregrine Falcons all call the Meadowlands home.

Tamron USA and Bergen County Camera will be providing loaner lenses for Canon, Nikon, and Sony mounts. *Limited supply available.
