Allendale Celery Farm

April 27 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am EDT

Led by Dave Oster, Associate Naturalist. The Allendale Celery Farm is a wildlife oasis in the midst of highly developed Bergen County. Once the site of an actual farm, it is now a town preserve consisting of a large marsh area, open lake and wet woodland. A trail some 2 miles in length circles the marsh and shorter trails lead into the woodland area. We will stop at several vantage points as we circle the marsh, and check the wooded area for early migrants. In April we may encounter a number of newly arrived wetland birds--herons, American Bittern and Virginia Rail are all possible. Wood Duck nests at the Celery Farm and other waterfowl species are usually present. We will also watch for passerine migrants including Eastern Phoebe, swallows, Marsh Wren and Palm Warbler. Surprises might include a Wilson's Snipe or Water Pipit. Parts of the trail may be wet to muddy so waterproof footgear is recommended. $15 members, $20 nonmembers. Please meet at the Celery Farm parking lot on Franklin Turnpike in Allendale. From the Garden State Parkway North take exit 163 to Route 17. Proceed on Route 17 approximately 7.2 miles north to East Allendale Avenue. Go west on East Allendale for 1 mile to Franklin Turnpike. Turn right and proceed a short distance to a small parking lot on the right.
