Invasive Species Managament

Invasive plants are plants that are not native to an area and also disrupt the natural environment.

Meadow Restoration

Meadows are a unique habitat that are increasingly rare in this area. Meadows help increase our bird, insect and small mammal diversity by providing unique habitat spaces.

Wildflower Woods

This area of the preserve is unique because it is totally fenced off—allowing native plants to grow without being eaten by deer.

Wildflower Island

The two-acre Wildflower Island is a refuge within the greater Teatown preserve. This unique sanctuary is home to over 230 native and endangered species of wildflowers.
