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.
