The two-acre Wildflower Island is a refuge within the greater Teatown preserve. This unique sanctuary is home to over 230 native and endangered species of wildflowers. The Island’s flora is unusually diverse; the surrounding lake provides favorable light and moisture, as well as isolation from the disturbances of people and animals.
Visitors enter through wrought-iron gates and cross a small wooden bridge leading to an Island path. Experienced guides lead visitors along the path, describing the unique features of the Island’s wildflowers, most of which are native to our area.
Wildflower Island is “managed” only to the extent that invasive alien plants are removed and certain native competitive species are not encouraged. We invite you to take a guided tour of Wildflower Island and enjoy the beauty of our natural heritage.
