Our Mission

Teatown Lake Reservation’s mission is to inspire our community to lifelong environmental stewardship.


We realize our mission through environmental education, stewardship of Teatown’s preserve, and regional conservation. At the center of all our endeavors is teamwork and partnership, because nature conservation and environmental health are possible only when people and their communities work together for the common good.  The Teatown team is made of our members, donors, volunteers, board, staff and program participants. Our successes are only possible because of their hard work and dedication to our mission. In addition, we seek collaborations with other organizations and businesses who share our vision.

Teatown is a member of the Land Trust Alliance, Federated Conservationists of Westchester County, Association of Nature Center Administrators, and Environmental Consortium of Hudson Valley Colleges and Universities.
