Teatown Highlight:

Experience! Nature
Teatown is proud to launch Experience! Nature an after-school enrichment program for Sleepy Hollow Middle School students focused on place-based learning at Peabody Preserve (a recently opened 39-acre, outdoor classroom owned by the school district and located in Sleepy Hollow). Our partners in this program include the Tarrytown Union Free School District, the Jacob Burns Film Center, Family Services of Westchester and the Friends of Peabody Preserve.


Experience! Nature is a journey of exploration and discovery, engaging students’ natural curiosity and awakening their innate ability to connect to the world around them.  Teatown educators will serve as mentors and teachers, guiding students to learn about the natural world and the environmental impacts they make where they live, while gaining insight about themselves and their relationships with their peers.


Media partner JBFC will collaborate with Teatown’s  educators and students to produce a dual-language, digital field guide to the Peabody Preserve.   The field guide will be easily accessible as a resource for the entire community.  Regular field trips in all seasons, led by Teatown to the Preserve will enable students to connect with nature, learn ecological concepts improving their ecological literacy as well as their English language skills.

Holi-daze Mini-Camp
December 29, 30, 31
The holidays are coming: when school is out and nature is in! Come for a day, or two or more of fun in the outdoors. There will be hiking, crafts, and enough adventure to keep your child  busy and active throughout the holiday season.
