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.

Dear friends,

The health and safety of our visitors and event attendees is always Teatown’s primary concern. In light of continuing developments surrounding COVID-19, we have closed the Visitor Center to the public and canceled programs until further notice. The trails will remain open daily, from dawn till dusk.

We hope that in the coming weeks and months, you can find solace at Teatown. While practicing social distancing and keeping apprised of scientific and official advice, we encourage you to come to the preserve, take a walk on the trails, and find comfort in the restorative effects of nature.

Our education team has been hard at work in putting together digital content across our social media and blog. Please visit our blog for activities to do with kids, mindfulness exercises, and more!


The Teatown staff and PlantFest Committee are currently evaluating the feasibility and options for holding PlantFest. Please continue to check in for updates.

Teatown needs your support, now more than ever.

To mitigate the transmission of COVID-19, we have closed our Visitor Center and cancelled our programs, making it difficult for us to earn the revenue that funds our work.

We welcome you to the preserve and ask you to please give a contribution today. Whether large or small, each donation will help support our staff, maintain our trails, and care for our wildlife ambassadors. Thank you for your support, from all of us at Teatown.

Teatown is welcoming a high volume of visitors during this time

We need your help in minimizing the impact on the preserve. As you enjoy Teatown’s trails, please keep in mind:

• Dogs must be leashed at all times, no exceptions
• Please pick up after your pet: dog waste spreads disease and pollutes our watershed
• Park safely in designated parking lots and not along public roadways
• Keep all foot traffic to marked trails (avoid roadways)
• Dispose of all trash and recycling at designated receptacles
• Even outdoors, practice social distancing, keeping at least 6ft between yourself and other visitors
