Well, you’ll need more than a drop, but the increasing capability of this emerging scientific tool is leading to the exciting possibility of its use in mainstream (pardon the pun) citizen science applications.

The mortality rate for reptiles and amphibians in captivity is staggering-- 75% die in the first year. Lisa Kelly, Teatown's Animal Care Supervisor, weighs in on the ethics surrounding owning these exotic pets.
If we’ve learned anything from the bald eagle and other once-endangered species, it is that powerful policy works.
Following a successful pilot program, Teatown and Pace University have officially launched a collaborative program which includes a college field biology course that brings Pace University students into the heart of Teatown’s 1,000-acre nature preserve.
Presentations included information on the identification, management and emerging threat level of the following pests to our region: viburnum leaf beetle, sirex wood wasp, oak wilt, southern pine beetle, winter moth and thousand cankers.
Teatown has maintained sugaring records since 2001 with notations on the weather preceding the sugaring season, the start and end dates of the season and the amount of syrup produced. Beginning in 2006 our records indicate unseasonably warm pre-season temperatures, and from 2009 on, there are repeated exhortations in the notes to begin tapping earlier.
Teatown is coordinating volunteers for this sample site as a part of NYS Department of Environmental Conservation's initiative to further understand this mysterious fish.
