Property Description

Nature preserve with more than seven miles of trails, streams and three-acre Pfister's Pond, abundant with wildlife. Our mission is to protect almost 400 wooded acres, all of its inhabitants and teach the next generations to do the same. Since 1961, TNC has nurtured an appreciation for nature, been a leader in open-space preservation and in environmental education for our community in Tenafly, Bergen County and beyond. We welcome visitors to hike, bird-watch, observe wildlife, cross-country ski, snow-shoe and ice skate on Pfister's Pond. Tenafly Nature Center is a sanctuary for human visitors - an island of green where bonds with nature can be renewed. Whether you have an hour or a day, our woods offer a peaceful respite from the rush of daily life. The visitor center is open daily 9 am - 5 pm, except major holidays. Trails are open from dawn to dusk, 365 days a year.
