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.
