Event Listing

While it looks like we are having a battle, Clermont and Staatsburgh are really great friends! Especially since we share so much Livingston family history! Here is a not-too-messy food fight your kids can enjoy in July, with a chance to win some chef swag and online acclaim!

We are excited that you’re going to enter our contest and make a “faux food” culinary concoction! The
goal of this contest is to have fun and be as imaginative as you want to be. You can make something
that people could actually eat, something you and your family would LOVE to eat, or even something
your family would never let you eat in real life!

You can make your faux (fake) culinary creation using any medium you want: drawing, painting,
sculpture, photo … you name it! Just send us a cool picture of your masterpiece, and fill out the form
below, to enter the contest. We can’t wait to see your creation!

All entries must be received by August 1, 2021. One entry per child

How to enter:

1. Fill out this ENTRY FORM and save it to your computer as a PDF
2. Attach this form, with one or more pictures of your culinary creation, to an email addressed to:
Emily.Robinson@parks.ny.gov. Please have photos in the form of .jpg, .jpeg, .tiff, .bmp, or .pdf.
3. If you would like to, and your parent or guardian approves, we would love to have a picture of you,
or you and your family, with your culinary creation!
4. You will receive an email acknowledgement that your entry has been received.

Teatown is a 1000-acre nature preserve and education center with nearly 15 miles of hiking trails located in the Lower Hudson Valley. Our mission is to inspire our community to lifelong environmental stewardship.

* Parking Policy

$5 parking for non-members

The losses in revenue from both cancelling programming and closing our Visitor Center has done significant damage to Teatown’s finances. We appreciate your support, which is critical to our non-profit organization during this time. Parking tags are again required. Parking tags are required daily, from 9am to 5pm. Click here for more information on our parking policy. Members will always park for free at Teatown.

Donate

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.

Nurture the precious bond between you and your baby or young toddler in a community that celebrates parenthood, childhood, and milestones big and small! Your child grows so much in the first two years, and in Kindermusik you’ll be an active witness to countless beautiful transformations. Our youngest Kindermusik class for 0-18 months focuses on strengthening that special bond between Baby and You! All the while, you’ll develop loving rituals to use at home that will empower you to be the best parent you can be.

In class, we nurture your child’s beginning movement – helping build the muscles needed to roll, crawl, walk, and run – and earliest communication skills – learning to “talk” with signs and exercise vocal muscles so they can jabber up a storm someday soon! You and Baby will enjoy instrument play, dances, exploration time, and precious together time – and you’ll get expert advice and parenting resources based on the most cutting-edge research in baby and early childhood development.

Contact us today to schedule your no-obligation trial class!
