With Dave Hall. Take a journey into the frozen swamp to search for winter visitors and lingering fall migrants that call western Essex home.

The majority of the Hatfield Swamp consists of forested wetlands with areas of scrub-shrub habitat and emergent wetland within the flood plain of the Passaic River. The site encompasses the Great Piece Meadows Natural Heritage Priority Site. Wintering Sharp-shinned Hawks, Long-eared Owls and Northern Saw-whet Owls are common.

That’s Wild! Tales from the Human Side of Nature with Eliana Ardila Kramer

January 28 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Free

Two More Days. Listen to Eliana's tale of her epic 25,000-mile birding road trip from Florida to Alaska. Hailing from Colombia, Eliana Ardila Kramer has an unrelenting passion for birds, butterflies, and biology. Her ornithological endeavors have taken her from her home in South Florida to many corners of the world. She’s served as a bird bander with the Cape Florida Banding Station, tromped through vast expanses of Alaskan tundra tracking Steller’s Eiders and Emperor Geese, and managed a misty cloud forest nature reserve in Ecuador. In 2018, she and her husband Marc set out on an epic 25,000-mile birding road trip from Florida to Alaska in their 1978 VW Bus. So began the “Birding by Bus” project, through which she and Marc have been speaking at birding festivals, guiding birding tours, and educating the public about nature, conservation, and the art of maintaining a 43-year old Volkswagen van.
