Help us support our animals and employees during this time of need.
Tenafly Nature Center (TNC) is a non-profit, independent, member-supported nature preserve located in Bergen County, New Jersey. Since its founding in 1961, TNC has nurtured a crucial appreciation for nature and has been a leader in open-space preservation and environmental education for our community and beyond.
Every day, our committed employees work to support the community we serve. Now, they need our help. Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic's impact TNC was unable to hold its annual fundraiser. Furthermore, all programs (for schools, scouts, families and individuals), during spring (the biggest fundraising season) had to be cancelled. These delays have significantly affected TNC's income to the extent that the organizations viability could be compromised.
Over the last few weeks visitor numbers have shown a significant increase. As one of the only natural areas still open in this area, families and individuals are seeking refuge on TNC's 7+ miles of trails. People are spending much needed family time outdoors, engaging in passive physical activity, and mentally destressing from the seriousness of the world around them.
Proud of its role in the community and the incredibly positive impact Tenafly Nature Center is having on the lives of so many. TNC will do everything it can to keep the trails open for visitors and their health. But, we need help.
During the coronavirus crisis, our organization is committed to ensuring that our employees are able to maintain financial stability so that they may care for the trails and keep them accessible to visitors while they provide day-to-day necessities for the 30+ non-releasable animals in our care.
We kindly ask that you join us in supporting our dedicated employees. Your gift will help provide immediate financial support so they can purchase essential needs for our education animal ambassadors, maintain the trails and keep them safe and open for visitors, and enable us to continue being there for a community that is in need of a safe outdoor escape (now it seems more than ever).
Consider helping TNC through this incredibly difficult period by making a contribution to Tenafly Nature Center today and stay safe.
