Teatown Highlight:   

Great volunteers are always making improvements to our trails. 

Last weekend, 12 individuals and 7 families (40 people total) from the Yorktown Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came to Teatown Lake Reservation as part of their Helping Hands Service to help get our trails ready for autumn hiking. Plan your employee or group volunteer opportunity here.
