The annual Celery Farm cleanup is this Saturday, April 1, and that's no joke.
We'll meet at 9 a.m. at the end of Green Way for a few hours of active conservation. We hope you will join us to spruce up the preserve. Many hands make light work! Marsh Warden Mike Limatola is the Coordinator, 201-739-8062 or [email protected]. Rain date is April 2, 2017.
The Fyke Nature Association and the Fell House have created a new volunteer group, the Friends of the Celery Farm & Fell House.
We need volunteers to pitch in at this Saturday's cleanup, guided walks and other events, so we created an e-mail list so we can let folks know when we need their help -- and when we have cool events, like upcoming talks on the Celery Farm and the historic John Fell House.
The group is free to join.
For example, the annual Celery Farm cleanup is Saturday, April 1 (no joke!) at 9 a.m., and we'd love some help picking up litter and doing some light trail work that morning.
The Fell House, meanwhile, is sponsoring a free reenactment of John Fell's arrest by local Loyalists (boo, hiss!) -- it's scheduled for Sunday, April 23.
Fyke hopes to have a monthly work morning at the Celery Farm to remove Garlic Mustard and other nasty invasives.
The Fell House and the Celery Farm have been connected ever since Founding Father John Fell owned the property that contained both. The Fell House, with its beautiful barn, is located across Franklin Turnpike from the Celery Farm in Allendale.
On old maps, by the way, the Celery Farm area is labeled "Fell's Meadows."
