April 26: Monthly Meeting: 8 p.m., Allendale Municipal Building

The Mystery Writers' Garden (with a nod to Agatha Christie), Edith Wallace

Are you willing to risk everything to eliminate an obnoxious neighbor, co-worker or relative? How?

You can get instructions from mystery stories written by the master Agatha Christie or contemporary authors.

Edith says: "I've selected plants that grow in northern New Jersey that may be used for their lethal potential."

Beware at tea time as some of these plants may be included in your beverage or cake.

Might you be the perpetrator or victim?

As Stiles Thomas would say, only a fool would miss this program! Free and open to the public. Program starts after a short business meeting.


May 4: Stepping Up For The Celery Farm and Pollinators

To register your team or to sign up for a time slot, contact Gabriele Schmitt,

To make a donation or to pledge a per-species amount, please see the pledge form on page 8.

Many of you know that Stepping Up is The Celery Farm's Big Day, as well as our fundraiser that will support the Celery Farm Pollinators this year. As a special bonus, this year's date will coincide with Global Big Day.

Also, Star Wars Day, "May The Fourth Be With You!"

Will there be a Millennium Falcon overhead? Or a Porg hidden along the trail?

Fyke teams will be birding the Celery Farm from dawn to dusk in two-hour shifts; you can sign up for as many shifts as you'd like.

As citizen-scientists, we are conducting an inventory of all the bird species seen that day. Free and open to the public.
