I will givea free talk about the Celery Farm Natural Area and nearby historic John Fell House in at the Bergen County Audubon Society on Wednesday ( Jan. 18).
I'll discuss the history of the Celery Farm and the Fell House – two subjects near and dear to my heart -- including the unsung John Fell’s heroic role in the Revolutionary War, the house that bears his name, and the swamp that he owned – once called Fell's Meadows and better known today as the 107-acre Celery Farm.
A slide show featuring never-seen before archival Fell photos and nature shots of the Celery Farm will illustrate my talk.
As a so-called bonus, I'll read aloud my ground-breaking story about the Wild Turduckens that have been reported on High Mountain.
There may also be a surprise inspection of the Crowphy trophy to make sure the BCAS is taking good care of the valuable statuette until its safe return to Fyke next winter.
