Celery Farm Plant ID Walk
July 8 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Join Mike Lefebvre, the publicity chairperson for FYKE, for a guided tour of this 107 acre fresh-water wetland in Allendale, NJ. Mike is active in leading plant ID walks and talks for FYKE, the Bergen County Audubon Society, the Friends of the NJ School of Conservation and the Friends of the Bonsal Preserve. In addition to the 248 species of birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, butterflies, and insects that inhabit this Farm, there are many native trees, shrubs, ferns, grasses and vines. This land was originally a peat bog but was converted into a farm after it was drained. It was then used to grow onions and celery. Today it is a nature preserve and bird sanctuary. Attendees please park off the Green Way entrance near the meadow entrance to the Celery Farm. Please note that parking is limited.
