About Fyke

About Fyke

Fyke was founded in 1952 by a group of people strongly dedicated to saving undeveloped tracts of land in Bergen County, New Jersey as nature preserves. Since its founding, Fyke has not only been a force for preservation, but a forum where people can educate themselves and share their love of the natural world.

Currently the Association is devoted to assisting the Borough of Allendale in keeping the Celery Farm Natural Area, a 107-acre freshwater wetland, in its natural state. As a result, fifty-three bird species breed here, and over 248 species have been recorded.
