A  "Green Island in Tenafly"

Our Story began in 1961-More than half a century ago, green island
a partnership of municipal and community groups turned a far-sighted vision of a "Green Island in Tenafly" into the Tenafly Nature Center. Their vision to create an "outdoor classroom" and "living laboratory" took shape on the original 52 acres of woodlands, protected as a natural haven for wildlife and the community. Trustees and staff continue to work closely with the community to bring the founders’ vision into the future by protecting open space and teaching our community about nature and the environment.
