Spring Appeal 2023

“People feel a kind of longing for a belonging to the natural world.”
– Robin Wall Kimmerer

Dear Friends,

Teatown has provided people with connection to the natural world throughout our 60-year history. The value of this endeavor has always been important, perhaps never more so than now.

As Spring arrives, we bear witness to the irrepressible energy of new life. We collectively breathe in this sensation and feel its hope-filled, healing properties. Such experiences are what make Teatown the essential community asset that so many have come to know and love. The conservation and management of more than 1,000 acres of open space, the creation of a 15-mile trail network that is unique in our region, and a series of beloved volunteer-driven events all connect the community to nature. Teatown experiences create a special kinship and fulfill the “longing for belonging.”

Teatown exists because it fulfills a community need. Teatown continues because of our community’s goodwill.

We ask for your support this Spring to keep Teatown’s 1,000 acres open and ready to welcome you, your family, and your neighbors. Any amount you can give to our Spring appeal is deeply appreciated.

Give your gift today! Your gift directly supports the protection and care of Teatown. It is your place made possible only through your support.

With abundant thanks and warm wishes to all,

Kevin Carter
Executive Director
