The view from my window shows a season of change. Bees picking up tiny suitcases of pollen drone past, too busy at work to pay me any mind. The butterfly bush attracts great spangled fritillary and monarch butterflies that land and flutter like showy baubles. Before the monarchs move south on their long journey to Mexico, Teatown educators join thousands of other citizen scientist volunteers across the country that catch, tag, and release monarchs as part of Monarch Watch.
Teatown is a 1000-acre nature preserve and education center located in the Lower Hudson Valley. Our mission is to inspire our community to lifelong environmental stewardship.
Our Raptor Loop will be CLOSED to the public Oct 23, 24, 30, and 31 during our Enchanted Forest programs. We apologize for any inconvenience, and ask that all visitors be respectful of this special event when it’s going on. The Raptor Loop will be open dawn to dusk on weekdays.
