Visitors' Center

John A. Redfield Building

The John A. Redfield Building is the visitors' center at Tenafly Nature Center. It is a small two level facility that houses TNC's small natural history museum. During business hours knowledgeable staff are available to answer questions about the trails, natural history, flora and fauna, and current environmental topics. Throughout the year, a wide assortment of educational programs are held either on the porch or inside the building (learn more about our seasonal programs today).

When programs are not in progress, visitors are welcome to come inside to:

View our Live Animal Collection

TNC is not a zoo, however it does house a small collection of animals that cannot be released back into the wild. Therefore, these ambassadors help TNC to educate visitors about the needs of our local wildlife and the importance of protecting their habitats.
