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.

From all of us at Teatown, we want to express our sincerest gratitude to everyone who made the 2020 Teatown Hudson River EagleFest such a spectacular day.

To all of the attendees, presenters, volunteers, collaborators, Teatown staff, sponsors (and of course the eagles!): we are so humbled by your support.

EagleFest has grown from its humble beginnings 16 years ago to become a far-reaching regional event, that reaches thousands of our community-members each year with the comeback story of the bald eagle.

The bald eagle has taught us an important lesson: that through education, partnership, and hard work, we CAN inspire our community to lifelong environmental stewardship and protect the health of our planet for future generations.

Farewell to our dear friend, Susan Jeffers
Susan Jeffers, a long-time Teatown neighbor, friend, and New York Times bestselling illustrator, died on January 22 after a brief illness. She was 77.
Her Teatown surroundings inspired many of her illustrations for such beloved books as Robert Frost’s Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening and Reeve Linbergh’s Midnight Farm. Susan was known in the Teatown community for lending her illustrating talent—including the iconic geranium illustration that announces our annual Teatown PlantFest.

Our Goal: One bag of trash at EagleFest

Our Goal: One bag of trash at EagleFest

Here at Teatown, we’re always challenging ourselves to be better environmental stewards. That’s why we’ve set an important goal this year: collect just one bag of trash during the 7+ hour duration of our largest event of the year, EagleFest. Will it be easy? No. Can we do it? Absolutely.
