We (Cole, Jess, Petia and I) spent the weekend sleuthing the perfect research walk. And we think we have found one that has a bit of everything. Cole, Jess, and Petia have developed a package of maps and information as well as a methodology. They will introduce you to the ideas and practices as well as lead you through some of the most astonishing parts of our transect. This will be a modern research walk in the spirit of Lewis and Clark or Alexander von Humbolt or … (I have added some links to contemporary walking practices here).
We will meet at 10am at the Richard DeKorte Park. The address is:
2 De Korte Park Plz
Lyndhurst, NJ 07071
Here is a link to google maps showing the location. You will need to drive there. There are no other forms of transportation. If you need a ride let us co-ordinate via email as a group. Please research directions carefully! And let us be on time. This is important. My cell # 207.332.6097
