Tabling Events

Tenafly Nature Center is always happy to participate in community events. Schedule us to make an appearance at your fundraiser, gala, festival, or conference. There are three different options to include us in your event:

  • We will set up a booth full of information about TNC and have a naturalist on hand to engage passers-by at no cost. 
  • For a small fee our table would include a few of our live animals along with our interactive table displays and information about TNC.
  • Schedule a TNC to Go program as part of your event (see program options below).
