Public Programming update

The health and safety of our visitors and event attendees is always Teatown’s primary concern. Please note the following:

  • The Visitor Center is open to the public 7 days a week, 9am – 5pm. Masks must be worn indoors in the Visitor Center and in the Nature Store.
  • Masks are no longer required on Teatown trails.
  • If a participant in a public program or any member of a participant’s household has any COVID-19 symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19 they must inform Teatown and remain home.
  • All participants in public programs must wear face masks in Teatown buildings and observe physical distancing protocols six feet apart as much as reasonably possible during group activities.
  • No refunds will be issued for any programs. Credits for future programs will be issued for health-related reasons only.
