We are sharing the documents on this page so that you may better understand our organizational process, conducted over many years, that led to the decision by Teatown’s Board of Trustees on the disposition of the Croft. A number of interested parties – architects, builders, potential buyers – were given access to the Croft house to aid us in our consideration.
Our mission is to inspire our community to lifelong environmental stewardship.
Teatown is a nonprofit nature preserve and environmental education center in the Lower Hudson Valley, with 15 miles of hiking trails, a two-acre island refuge for over 230 species of native wildflowers, year-round programming, wildlife exhibits, and natural science day camps in the summer and school breaks.

At 1,000 acres, Teatown is the largest privately held nature preserve in Westchester. Our aim is to conserve open space for generations to come through science-based stewardship initiatives that protect habitats, biodiversity, and the ecosystem services we depend upon.
Take a hike, join a program, visit Teatown’s resident Animal Ambassadors, shop at the nature store, or schedule a tour to Wildflower Island.
