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.
Environmental education is the foundation of our impact. Our goal is to instill a love of the environment, positive attitudes toward conservation and environmental protection and a sense of personal and civic responsibility.
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.
