More than 1100 groups of area children learn about the natural world with the Tenafly Nature Center each year. With their boundless curiosity, they touch, observe and listen to the natural world. Invite one of our professional educators to bring classroom concepts to life and lead your students in hands-on learning with live animals and/or artifacts from our 380-acre living museum.
Our programs are designed to help educators meet some of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Standards, Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework, Next Generation Science Standards, and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, and have been developed for students ages 3 and up.
These programs are designed to be taught at your location.
