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.

The Ridgewood Wildscape Associationreleases descriptive brochure
We had a very successful "Walktober" event at Gypsy-King's on Sunday the 22nd.
The weather was warm, the sun was shining, and the light through the trees was perfect.
Thanks to the Parks and Recreation Department and Wildscape, we had almost 50 participants, most of whom had never been to the area.
Our ecologist, Jean Ephiphan, led the group and described the area. Sadly, the water level in the ponds is very very low because of our drought.
Thanks to all who attended, and we hope to see you at another event (To Be Announced).
