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.

Your donation can make

an immediate impact to help

conserve and protect the

diversity of wildlife, plants

and habitats…

today and into the future.

Why We Do What We Do Support Teatown this Spring:

Imagine for a moment, Teatown without…


Dogwoods blooming in the Spring on the Back 40 Trail


– Or maples on display in all their glorious fall colors at Vernay Lake


– Or walking the Lakeside Trail without the sound of bird song


– Or without a forest at all


These are very real threats to the  biodiversity of Teatown’s preserve.  So, what are we doing? How is  Teatown leading as part of the solution?


Read on and become part of the solution…
