Members-Only Fishing at Teatown: THROUGH AUGUST 29!!

In response to requests from our members, Teatown has decided to extend fishing on Teatown and Vernay Lakes on Saturdays until the end of August (August 29) from 7 am - 4 pm. All fishing rules must be followed.  Registration is required and badges must be picked up and returned to the Nature Center.  We ask that participants help us to ensure the success of the program by informing us if non-members are fishing and by helping to pick up any trash.  The following rules apply to this program.

Would you like to fish at Teatown, but are not currently a member?  Join today!


An Update on The Croft:

The deadline for submissions to dismantle this old house or to propose an onsite repurposing was March 1, 2015.  Although numerous proposals were received Teatown’s Board of Directors determined that none were fully complete which would allow for acceptance by Teatown.  Being committed to finding the best solution compatible with Teatown’s mission, Teatown’s Board voted to extend the deadline until September 30, 2015 allowing it to continue a dialogue with those submissions that initially met Teatown’s crtieria.  The Board of Directors will also continue to accept new submissions  during the period ending September 30, 2015 and may at any time over the 6 month period  choose to accept a submission.

For further information please contact:  Dianne Barron, Managing Director, dbarron@teatown.org.
