With children staying home from school in the coming weeks, our Education staff wanted to share some family-friendly outdoor activities with our community as we practice social distancing.
Here’s what you need to know about the program, as well as the state of food scrap recycling programs county-wide.
If you love hiking and learning about the natural world, I bet you hope your child will also long for strolls in the woods! The question is, how do you motivate your little one to get outdoors and ask for woodland adventuring?
These days, more and more people are talking about eels. You may even know someone who “counts” them!
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.
The non-releasable birds of prey that call Teatown home live at Teatown for educational purposes, as they cannot be released back into the wild due to injuries sustained (typically car and hunting related injuries). These birds find a new lease on life at Teatown, where they educate the public about their species and what we can do to protect them.
We're proud to announce that in 2019, we had our greatest ever 1-year impact in this area, reaching over 2,500 students in underserved communities.
Our shared future depends on our ability to transform the way we do business, and even small non-profits like Teatown contribute to the global environmental footprint.
This feathered forager may rule the Thanksgiving menu but how much do you actually know about our friend the wild turkey?
Wow—what a day! As a part of their “Day for Doing Good” on Friday, nearly 120 Regeneron volunteers helped remove a half acre of invasive plants, plant more than 100 native plants, and add non-slip materials to existing bridges and boardwalks on the preserve.
What if in the process of removing our leaves, we are disrupting a cycle that they are an important part of?
A study published this September in Science shared alarming news: about 3 billion birds, or nearly one-third of bird populations in the United States and Canada, have disappeared in the last 50 years. Why? It turns out there are quite a few reasons and most have to do with human behavior. If the bad news is that it’s our fault, the good news is that we can do something about it.
