Upcoming Events

  • Celebrate Moth Week at Cliffdale Farm

    7/28/2016

    8:00 pm

    Stop by Cliffdale Farm and delve into the world of moths with moth expert, Charlie Roberto.  Charlie will present a slideshow on moths then light up the night to attract moths.  Free.  All welcome.

  • Shinrin-yoku

    7/31/2016

    9:45 am - 12:00 pm

    The practice of Shinrin-yoku allows us to jump the great wall of words and book learning that keep us from experiencing the natural world on its own wonderful terms. Learn the benefits of Shinrin-Yoku, on meditative walks through meadows and woodlands. Each meeting consists of two slowly paced easy walks, prefaced by an exercise for increasing awareness through the senses. Julie Woodward, one of Teatown’s Wildflower Island Guides, will lead these walks to help people find some moments of boundless space and time, where, as the great environmentalist John Muir once wrote,“the galling harness of civilization drops off” and “every leaf seems to speak.” Please dress for the weather, as we will experience the forest environment as it is offered to us.  Bring bug spray and water.  For adults.

  • Summer Saturday Adventures

    8/6/2016

    10:00 am - 11:30 am

    Decomposers Among Us:

    Summertime is a great time for exploration and discovery Teatown-style!  Lace up your hiking boots, and join us for habitat hikes, stream stomps and wild foraging.  Each adventure will start with a story and end with an activity, with plenty of time for discovery in between.  All welcome.

  • Teatown Participates in Sarah Lawrence Study to Understand the Impact of Field Trips

    Teatown is collaborating in a research grant with Sarah Lawrence College Center for the Urban River at Beczak entitled “The Importance of Field Trips and Cultural Awareness in Education,” awarded by the NYS Water Resources Institute at Cornell University and NYS DEC, Hudson River Estuary Program. Recently Sarah Lawrence graduate student, Lars Freeman, visited Teatown to gather information for the study which assesses the value of field trips for students in grades 2 – 6, who visit environmental education organizations like Teatown. Lars was recruited for this project by Kathleen Ruen, the Associate Director of the Art of Teaching Program at Sarah Lawrence.
