Lace up your hiking boots and bond with fellow female hikers as we cruise the trails. We’ll observe the landscape as it transforms from summer to fall, enjoying the foliage along the way.
This is the fourth in our monthly hike series meant to help newcomers discover Teatown. We will explore a different, more moderate trail at a faster pace, while enjoying the changing foliage and all that Teatown has to offer. This hike is suitable for everyone aged 7 and older, and anyone who wants to start...
Spiders, snakes, bats, and bugs! So many different animals get a bad rap due to age-old superstitions and stories. Teatown’s myth buster, Elissa Schilmeister, will share her knowledge of the importance of all these animals for a healthy world. There will be plenty of opportunities to touch some of these misunderstood creatures.
Learn about the community of organisms that grow on trees in our area, from lichens to liverworts to tardigrades. Take a hike with Taro Ietaka, a professional naturalist and land manager, certified arborist, and past president of the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association, to find these woodland wonders.
