Celery Farm Clean-up: Stay Tuned

Deputy Marsh Warden Gaby Schmitt writes:

Hi everyone!

Looking at the weather forecast for tomorrow morning, we may have to move the cleanup to Sunday. Don't want anyone slip-sliding on wet, muddy trails just to chase down trash.

I'll check it out around 8 a.m. and send an email to confirm. (And I will try to post here...)

The Vultures Return

If you visited the Celery Farm on Wednesday afternoon, you might have seen the vultures in my neighbor's yard again.

This time it was Black Vultures walking around. Gotta love those chalky white legs.

Below, a shot from Sunday's TV fun.





Celery Farm Clean-up Is Saturday!

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.

A pair of gloves might come in handy.



Monday Morning Mammal Skull Mystery

OK, so a bit weird for a Monday Morning Mystery, but if you were in the Celery Farm yesterday, you either saw Turkey Vultures dining on a critter, or smelled what was left.

I buried the latter, but not before photographing the small mammal's skull.  Fur looked a bit grayish. What was it?  I saved it in case anyone has advice on cleaning it.
