Next Events and Volunteer Opportunity

We'd love your help -- and participation -- at these free Celery Farm and Fyke Nature Association events.

Friday, May 18 — Monthly meeting: 8 p.m. All about Damselflies & Dragonflies  
For many years, while birding, Kurt Muenz has often photographed colorful Odonata -- “Odes” for short. Over the last 5 years he's also become interested in identifying species and learning about behavior as a parallel hobby. Kurt will share some of these findings and images with us at Fyke's monthly meeting at Allendale Borough Hall at 8 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Wear long pants and socks; bring water and bug spray! Leader: Mike Limatola. Register for this walk by e-mail to

Saturday, June 16 — Celery Farm Cleanup
