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.

Wildscape sponsored cleanup
Many thanks to those who participated in this year's successful cleanup of a portion of the HoHoKus Brook on Sunday, October 5. Photos are posted in Archives.
We were lucky enough to have a beautiful clear day; we removed wire, pipes, cinder block, a 6' banquet table, lawnmower, and other debris.
But the consensus was loud and clear: next year we go back to muddy Gypsy Pond!
