    Open to the public as of May 26, 2018.

    Come visit our new 12 x 24' butterfly house filled with native butterflies. This new Butterfly house offers visitors a total immersion experience for the young and old as it introduces visitors to the wonders of metamorphosis. 


    This seasonal exhibit showcases several beautifully colored butterflies sipping nectar and taking flight, offering guests the opportunity to better understand and appreciate their life cycle and importance to the ecosystem. Inside the exhibit you will be welcome to chat with staff or volunteers, ask questions, or simply relax and enjoy the space while butterflies flit and fly about. See if a butterfly will land on your nectar stick or just watch them fly around you as they move between nectar plants. Observe butterfly chrysalis in the chrysalis box. Maybe you will be lucky enough to see a butterfly emerge!

    Visitors are encouraged to show off pictures of their visit on social media using the #TNCButterfly.

    Open Wednesday through Sunday 11:00 am to 3:00 pm weather permitting. Please call ahead for availability during inclement weather. The Butterfly House will close in October (closing date is weather dependent).

    Calling all nature-loving readers! StoryWalk® is an interactive outdoor exhibit that turns reading into an adventure along the trails without electronic devices. Hikers can read a nature-themed story while they walk in the woods. Designed for beginning readers, the stories will appeal to all ages. Tenafly Nature Center will post a new story, page by page, along a trail each season. Free!



    The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

                Campers will “stop and smell the roses” (native wildflowers, in this case) and learn to look beyond the individual components of a forest.

                                                    To Register:

                                                    1. Current annual Family Membership ($60) is required for all participants in our camp programs. Not a member? Join or renew now and take advantage of what the nature center offers all year round.
                                                    2. Click the Register button, complete the form, and pay with a credit card. 
                                                    3. Wait for your confirmation email and use the link to log into our online health system: CAMPDOCS. (May take up to a week to receive email)

                                                    This is where you will tell us about your camper, fill out health information, emergency contacts, other important safety data, and submit the following required files:The Mandatory Health Packet: Universal Health Record from your child’s health care provider. 

                                                    Including an Immunization History:

                                                    • Please note, if your health care provider will not be including a complete immunization form the Health Department requires a written statement signed by the parent or guardian explaining how the administration of immunizing agents conflicts with the camper’s exercise of bona fide religious tenets or practices. General philosophical or moral objection to immunization shall not be sufficient for an exemption on religious grounds. 
                                                    • A copy of your insurance card.
                                                    • A copy of any information regarding your child's activity restrictions/special needs (ex. IEP, ISFP).
                                                    • Complete the form submission through CAMPDOCS 7 days prior to the start of the camp session. New Jersey state law requires that campers submit a current health record each year.

                                                    Failure to submit all forms to TNC 7 days before the first day of camp will result in forfeiture of your registration fee. No exceptions.
