Tenafly Nature Center is a non-profit, independent, member-supported nature preserve located in Bergen County, New Jersey. Since 1961, TNC has nurtured an appreciation for nature, been a leader in open-space preservation and in environmental education for our community and beyond. There is no charge for self-guided visits.


We steward nearly 400 acres of forest land and wetland in order to protect, improve, restore, and sustain it as wildlife habitat.
  • We work to preserving and improve the quality of water resources (freshwater biomes) including riparian (streams and rivers) as well as ponds (including small seasonal vernal pools) and wetlands.
  • We strive to maintain the highest biodiversity possible on our land.
