Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Teatown'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.
Teatown Lake Reservation, founded in 1963, is a nature preserve and education center in northern Westchester County, NY. Teatown is dedicated to increasing appreciation and understanding of our natural heritage. With this simple statement comes the challenge to use our resources in personnel and collections to instill a sense of stewardship of our environment in the children and adults who visit here. Teatown is dedicated to adding to these collections to achieve its educational goals. With land conservation, we have rededicated ourselves to taking a more proactive role, via easements and acquisition, and collaboration with local and state governments and conservation organizations.
