Bergen County author Jim Wright will illuminate the history of Allendale’s Celery Farm nature refuge and historic John Fell House – two subjects near and dear to his heart—in a free talk and slideshow. Wright will explain the unsung John Fell’s heroic role in the Revolutionary War and discuss the house that bears his name and the swamp that he owned – better known today as the 107- acre Celery Farm. Wright, who writes the popular “Bird Watcher” for The Record, is in a unique position to talk about John Fell and the Celery Farm. He has written extensively on both subjects, and he is deputy warden of the natural area—once called Fell’s Meadows. A slide show featuring archival photos and nature shots of the Celery Farm will illustrate Wright’s talk. As a bonus, he will read aloud his ground-breaking story about Wild Turduckens reported on High Mountain.
