The losses in revenue from both cancelling programming and closing our Visitor Center has done significant damage to Teatown’s finances.

Click here for more information on our parking policy. Members will always park for free at Teatown.

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.

During this earth science-based program, attendees will embark on a short, gentle hike with a Museum Educator through the Bartow-Pell woods and learn about the plants and animals that call Pelham Bay Park home. You will be able to observe flora and fauna in their natural habitat, as well as learn about the influence that humans have had on the land over time. The spring season is the best time of year to explore the forest and coastline as seals can be seen sunbathing and migratory birds and wildlife are more visible during this time of year.
