Celery Farm Parking Alert Beginning Monday, May 20

Starting as early as Monday, May 20, the Celery Farm Franklin Turnpike parking area will likely be closed for an upgrade. There will likely be roadwork on the Franklin Turnpike as well, so be prepared.

While this work is being done, you can park on Pittis Ave or at the Green Way cul-de-sac.

A big thank you to the Borough of Allendale for improving the deteriorating parking lot.

East Side Native Plant Garden

The plants are in! On May 1, 2024, most of a total of 996 deer-resistant native plant "plugs" were planted in the new East Side Native Plant Garden by Fyke Nature Association volunteers, who will be tending to them over the summer. You can learn more about what is happening here.

The Fyke Nature Association was founded in 1952 with the goal of saving undeveloped tracts of land in Bergen County, New Jersey, and establishing them as Nature Preserves. In one of the most densely populated areas in New Jersey, the Fyke Nature Association’s mandate of preservation and stewardship is of the utmost urgency and importance.

We offer educational programs and workshops of interest to people of all ages throughout the year. We also lead field trips to various locations in New Jersey and southeastern New York for birding, botanizing, and general nature study. We are an active and dynamic organization dedicated to conservation and environmental protection.
