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

Raptor Loop

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: The Scenic Route

Enjoy our new “The Scenic Route” Exhibition by artist Cindy Sacks, now on display at our Visitor Center!

In her artist’s statement, Cindy says: “Painting encourages me to pay attention to each feather, each flower, every detail and its relationship to the whole. I am grateful to live in the beautiful landscape of Northern Westchester, which provides abundant inspiration for my work. Whether oil or watercolor, the paintings I enjoy most are half-untamed, revealing a connection between the artist’s painted mark and the patterns of the natural world.”

The exhibition is on view from October 1, 2021, until January 30, 2022, during the regular Visitor’s Center hours.
