The Reimagined Pancake Brunch!

What’s a Pancake Brunch without pancakes? Find out at our “Reimagined Pancake Brunch 2021!”

We’re sorry we can’t flip pancakes or fry up bacon and sausages for you this year — thanks, COVID — but we welcome you to Teatown on Saturday, March 20 to enjoy walking the trails; spotting the “Birds of Spring” with Teatown’s beloved birding expert, Charlie Roberto; shopping for treats and Teatown items at our pop-up Teatown Nature Store; and picking up your pre-ordered “Maple Magic Bundle” (including pancake mix, maple syrup, maple candies, and other goodies) from our Teatown e-Store. We have some fun surprises in store, so keep an eye on this page and our social media channels for an up-to-date schedule of festivities. We look forward to seeing you here at Teatown, and we hope you enjoy our “sweetest time of the year.”

Pollution in the COVID World

Pollution in the COVID World

Many nature centers, preserves, parks and hiking trails, welcomed record numbers of visitors with a skeleton staff. With visitor safety in mind, overcrowding, trail conditions and sanitation were all evaluated and became a priority. Teatown experienced a huge increase in out of area and first time visitors.
