Trails are open 365 days a year from dawn to dusk.
Teatown Lake Reservation’s mission is to conserve open space and to educate and involve the regional community in order to sustain the diversity of wildlife, plants and habitats for future generations.
Berl Brechner, an area resident for over 35 years, presents 30 scenes from nearby that he has captured, most of them from trails, nooks and crannies of Teatown Lake Reservation. Much of the exhibit has been created with a relatively simple digital camera, with special attention to form and light. All photographs are for sale, and all proceeds will be donated to Teatown Lake Reservation.
