Visitor Center

Stop at the Visitor Center to grab a map of the trails, shop at the Nature Store, visit our exhibits, and take a rest after a long hike. 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.


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 great horned owls, red-tailed 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 outdoor classroom teaches visitors about healthy forests.

In the Gallery: Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

An exhibition of botanical art featuring Corinne Lapin-Cohen with artists Lenore M. Adams, Rochelle Auslander Phyllis Chadwick, Ann J. Goodman, Gloria Gorell, Linda Jbara, Norma Kurman, and Yona Shilling-Wiesen

A series of paintings expressing concern with the steady destruction of our environment. The pollution of air, water and soil can lead to the destruction of ecosystems, habitats, and the extinction of plants and wildlife.

In the oil paintings, the plant is absent with only the memory of its color or habitat remaining. Each oil painting is detailed by drawing with sterling silver or silverpoint, which will continue to tarnish and age forever, thus making the work “alive.” The exquisitely detailed beautiful watercolor paintings remind us of the importance of preserving our natural environment and native wildflowers.
