Celery Farm Walk This Saturday @ 8 a.m.

The Fyke Nature Association is offering a free guided nature walk at the Celery Farm in Allendale this Saturday, Oct. 3, at 8 a.m.

The walk, led by Marsh Warden Mike Limatola, is for nature-lovers of all ages and birders of all levels.

We'll look for  bugs, weird plants and our feathered friends. We meet at the end of Green Way on the north end of the CF off Franklin Turnpike.

E-mail Mike Limatola at mike.limatola (at) if you plan to attend.

More about NY Ironweed here.
