Installation of Your Bench

It takes about eight weeks from the receipt of your donation to installation of the bench and plaque, though supplies, time of year, weather, and other factors can lengthen this timeframe. We will notify you via email once the installation is complete.

Included with your donation is a 3”x7” bronze plaque that can be personalized in order to share the name of your loved one or celebrate your special event with Tenafly Nature Center’s visitors.
