Teatown Nature Girls

Teatown Nature Girls is an afterschool enrichment program that develops interest in nature and science in a safe and engaging environment, encouraging girls to get out and truly be ‘wild women’. Nature Girls focus on cooperation, self-confidence, and leadership skills as they follow in the footsteps of Jane Goodall and other great Nature Girls.
