Welcome to Allendale’s Celery Farm!

The Celery Farm was a working celery farm but is now a beautiful 107 acre freshwater wetland preserve wildlife sanctuary.

The main trail encircles Lake Appert which is the main water body in the preserve.

Even birds like to take the whole family for a stroll on the relaxing trails here.

There are two other bodies of water included here such as Phair’s Pond and Blue Heron Pond.  Allendale Brook flows to the east of the preserve.

It’s a great place to relax and take a stroll or even a jog.

    Owls of New Jersey

    Don Torino, President of Bergen County Audubon Society, will present a program on Owls of New Jersey. More than any other group of birds, nature lovers are in awe of Owls. They are mysterious creatures of the night and are steeped in folklore and mythology. Don will discuss the many owl species that can be seen in our area.

    You don’t have to be a member to attend our meetings but we certainly always welcome/encourage new members ($15 for individual; $20 for family membership – all monies go to support the Celery Farm …see http://www.fykenature.org/join.html for details).
