As New Jersey begins to recover from the coronavirus pandemic, the Montclair Bird Club is restarting field trips, beginning with weekly Wednesday morning warbler walks in Garret Mountain Reservation and a trip to the South Amboy mudflats and Conaskonk Point in Union Beach on Friday, May 14.

Preregistration is required to participate in all trips, as trip size will be strictly limited. Email montclairbirdclub@gmail.com to RSVP.

Additional rules include that participants must have been fully vaccinated 14 days prior to the field trip, should only carpool with other members of their immediate family and be masked if carpooling with non-family, bring their own optics and wear masks.

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you value from Montclair Local, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends on the community's support — we exist because the old model of selling ads alone just can't fund journalism at the level we endeavor to provide. That's why you've seen other local newsrooms cut back staff or shut down entirely. Montclair Local was created because we believe that's unacceptable; the community's at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held to account, when diverse lived experiences are shared — when the community is well-informed.

Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond. Visit MontclairLocal.news/donations to see how we're doing and make your contribution.
