About the Ridgewood Wildscape Association
The Ridgewood Wildscape Association was formed in 1976 as a living memorial to Dr. Ann Dunham, who was a Ridgewood resident for 60 years and a nature consultant for the public schools.
The purposes of the Association are:1. to promote, in cooperation with the Village of Ridgewood and the Board of Education, the preservation and maintenance of undeveloped Village-owned land;
2. to provide nature education services and enjoyment for all Village residents and friends;
3. to act as guardians of the undeveloped areas in the Village by encouraging residents to use the "wild" areas for birding, picnics and walks, and to experience the varied flora and fauna in each area in order to understand the value of open space.

EARLY WINTER WALK
We are very very fortunate that Patrick Scheuer, the director of the NJ Audubon Lorrimer Sanctuary, has agreed to lead an early winter walk to our mysterious Gypsy and King's Ponds.Patrick is an expert on birds, plants, and you name it, plus a terrific leader. We do have to go earlier than we usually do, but this way we get to see some early birding activity, and maybe some turtles as well, and who knows what else lurks in the pond and in the bushes and trees!
Where: Meeting place will be announced closer to the date.
When: Sunday, December 8
What time? 9:30AM-11 AM
Bring the kids, bring the neighbors, bring a bag to collect trash...Old comfortable clothes suggested! And lets hope we are as lucky as we usually have been for a nice clear cool A. M.
