Sunday: High Mountain Hikes!

1-JW TNC High Mountain Clove
Not sure if these are a tradition quite
yet, but...
April 30, 2017 (Sunday) — High Mountain Hike
9 a.m. Clove Walk, 11 a.m. Summit Hike
            Join Fyke Nature Association on Sunday morning, April 30, for one or two free walks. First, at 9 a.m., we'll walk to historic Franklin Clove, a ravine with cool geology and history – Lenapes once wintered there.  The terrain is flat but rocky, so wear serious hiking boots. (That's the Clove in the lower left, above.)
            We'll then regroup and take a free rigorous hike to the summit of High Mountain – which offers historic views of New York City and the suburbs of North Jersey.  We'll look for birds, and pick up any trash we see along the way. Bring water and wear sturdy hiking shoes. For more information or to rsvp, e-mail [email protected].

An Arresting John Fell Day

1-DSCN2248A big thank you to all the folks who participated in John Fell Day,  and  to all the wonderful volunteers who made everything go so smoothly on this sunny April Sunday.

Heard's Brigade reenacted the arrest of John Fell at his house -- now known as 240 years ago as the John Fell House -- twice. The brigade was great, but most in the audience were rooting for John Fell and his family.  (Thank you Heard's Brigade and all the terrific volunteers.
