On May 18 2003, a two mile trail bordering High Point State Park and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area was constructed at Fountain House Farm at High Point. The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Wildlife Trail was built by Fountain House members and staff, community volunteers, Eagle Scout candidate Stephen Kovalcik and members of BSA Troop No 74 from Clifton, New Jersey. This collaborative effort was made possible by the generosity of The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation, established in 2000 as a continuing legacy for 9 year old Danny who had Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The farm at High Point and Fountain House value their partnership with The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation. Working together, we continue to make headway on our shared mission of providing people often stigmatized by their neurological challenges with opportunities that both honor their abilities, gifts and individuality as well as provide active engagement in community life. On April 30 2008 Linda Walder. Executive Director of The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation presented a check to Steven Pike one of the managers of Fountain House Farm at the Fountain House headquarters in Manhattan. This generous amount has enabled Fountain House Farm at High Point to restore and develop the The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Wildlife Trail. On Saturday May 22 2010 the Re-dedication of the Wildlife Trail was held at Fountain House Farm. Linda Walder, Fred Fiddle, families and friends of The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation as well as staff and members of Fountain House were in attendance on this special day.
We welcome all families and friends of The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation to call us here at Fountain House Farm at High Point at 973.293.3739 whenever they would like to come and use the wildlife trail and visit the farm. We are privileged to have such a beautiful trail and invite you all to share it with us.
