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.

Farewell to our dear friend, Ed Mertz

September 27, 1945 – January 10, 2020

Edward Mertz, 74, passed away on January 10, 2020. He was born in the Bronx and lived most of his life in Flushing before moving to Croton-on-Hudson, NY in 2014.

Outside of Ed’s work as an engineer, he enjoyed a lifetime of being out of doors, hiking through parks and woods, fishing, bird watching, observing all nature, and taking thousands of nature photographs. We are honored to be showing his last photography gallery show, 12 Months of Nature in our Visitor Center. Stop by and join us as we celebrate Ed’s life and love of nature. The show will run through the end of February.

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.
