Subject: [JERSEYBI] Upcoming Bergen County Audubon Meeting
Join us on Weds, March 15 as we learn about Wetland Restoration, Creation
and Enhancement in the Meadowlands, presented by Gabrielle Bennett-Meany,
NJSEA (New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority- formerly New Jersey
Meadowlands Commission) Gabrielle Bennett-Meany is a Senior Natural
Resource Program Specialist at the NJSEA. The New Jersey Meadowlands is a
unique urban ecosystem. Wetlands provide habitats and breeding grounds for
many species of animals and vegetation, filter pollutants and
temporarily hold rainwater and runoff, which reduce flooding and soil
erosion. Early settlers and 19th century residents sought to fill in the
swamps and dike the creeks to make the land suitable for their purposes. A
goal of NJSEA is to preserve or enhance the drained wetlands. The·intent of
wetlands enhancement involves improving the site’s ecological value. Come
join us to learn from Gaby how this is being accomplished. Chapter
business meeting begins at 7:30 PM with program at 8:00. Meetings are free
and open to the public and are held at Teaneck Creek Conservancy, 20 Puffin
Way, Teaneck.
