This Day In History: 1952-03-28
The newly organized Fyke Nature Association held its first regular meeting in the Ramsey Borough Hall. Mrs. Ludwig Fusser of Redburn gave a program entitled “A Marsh is Wealth”
The new club was formed to bring together those who were interested in preserving Fyke Park (Now Campgaw Park) which was then being acquired by Bergen County as a nature reserve. Its aim was to study, catalogue and preserve this stretch of woodlands. A series of programs for the coming months was laid out. These included sessions on geology, astronomy, wild flowers and fruits & seed pods. Field trips were planned to serve the meteor shower of the Perselds, to study mushrooms and to take the annual Christmas bird count.
