Assemblywoman Sandy Galef Discusses the Teatown Lake Reservation on “Dear Sandy”

June 1, 2009

Assemblywoman Sandy Galef hosts Dr. Fred Koontz, Executive Director of Teatown Lake Reservation. The Teatown Lake Reservation is a regional environmental organization with an 834-acre nature preserve and education center and is also the largest nonprofit nature preserve in Westchester County. Galef and Koontz talk about the role that Teatown serves in its community, including environmental education, conservation work on the “Hudson Hills and Highlands,” and the Environmental Stewardship Program. “Teatown has always been at the forefront of environmental education in our community and their conservation efforts have encouraged others to join in the fight to save what is left of our irreplaceable ecosystem,” said Galef.

Recently, Teatown’s conservation work has focused on the “Hudson Hills and Highlands,” but Galef and Koontz also discuss preservation efforts in the lower Hudson region as well as all the other activities happening everyday at Teatown. “All the services that Teatown provides make it an invaluable resource to our community,” said Galef. “Teatown Reservation not only educates over 12,000 children and adults each year, but thousands of people regularly visit to hike, enjoy the scenery and explore this beautiful preserve.” To learn more, tune in to cable television at the following dates and times.
