Exhibits

Teatown’s visitor center hosts a number of exhibits that teach our community about our local wildlife.

Raptor Loop

Our non-releasable birds of prey include a bald eagle, screech owls, hawks, and more.

Animal Ambassadors

Our animal ambassadors are non-releasable animals that serve to teach the public about our local wildlife. They include opossums, snakes, turtles, and more!

Wildflower Woods

Our fenced-off outdoor classroom teaches visitors about healthy forests.

In the Gallery: Ed Mertz

Now on exhibit in the Visitor Center: 12 Months of Nature with Ed Mertz. Outside of Ed’s work as an engineer, he has enjoyed a lifetime of being out of doors, hiking through parks and woods, fishing, bird watching, observing all nature, and taking thousands of nature photographs. With that in mind, he has put together 12 photographs that show the diversity of nature and the change of seasons — each photograph showing a small piece of time.
