Stepping Up For Lorrimer

This will be our 19th Celery Farm Big Day, also known as “Stepping Up For Lorrimer”. 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.
We have two goals:
1. As citizen-scientists, to conduct an inventory of all the bird species seen that day.
2. To raise funds to help support the children's education programs at New Jersey Audubon’s Lorrimer Sanctuary in Franklin Lakes.
To register your team or to sign up for a time slot, contact Gabriele Schmitt,

NPC Field Trips

The Nature Program Cooperative (NPC) is a collaboration between over a dozen local organizations like Fyke that provide quality nature programs. Throughout the year, NPC members host activities and programs to which all group members are invited. When applicable, member discounts will apply to NPC partner members and supporters. For example, if Tenafly Nature Center hosts an event, members of all other NPC groups pay TNC’s member rate. For more details, please see the NPC website at
