Dear friends,

The health and safety of our visitors and event attendees is always Teatown’s primary concern. Please note the following:

  • The Visitor Center and restrooms remain closed until further notice. The trails remain open from dawn till dusk. The Visitor Center will open when we are confident that we can do so safely for our staff and visitors.
  • In-person programs are resuming in July. We will soon be holding outdoor programs for adults and families, while strictly following mandated guidelines. Programs will be held outdoors. Participants are required to wear face masks, and to practice physical distancing. We now have outdoor restrooms to accommodate program participants.

Teatown needs your support, now more than ever.

To mitigate the transmission of COVID-19, we’ve had to close our Visitor Center and cancel programs, making it difficult for us to earn the revenue that funds our work.

We welcome you to the preserve and ask you to please give a contribution today. Whether large or small, each donation will help support our staff, maintain our trails, and care for our wildlife ambassadors. Thank you for your support, from all of us at Teatown.

Stop at the Visitor’s Center to grab a map of the trails, shop at the Nature Store, visit our exhibits and take a rest after a long hike. Open Daily, 9am—5pm, 7 days a week.

Raptor Loop

Wildflower Woods

Our fenced-off 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 & soil can lead to the destruction of ecosystems, habitats and the extinction of plants & 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.

Nature Store

Located in Teatown’s Nature Center, the Nature Store helps to fulfill Teatown’s mission to educate the public and promote sustainable living in the Hudson Valley and beyond. All purchases help support Teatown’s educational programs. The store carries a variety of gifts, books, and children’s items.

A variety of nature-inspired merchandise is carefully selected by our knowledgeable staff that are available to assist you during regular Visitor Center hours. Whether you’re shopping for a special occasion or just because, we’ll help you find just the right thing. For more information, you can contact the store at 914-762-2912, ext. 110.
