Tenafly Nature Center 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.
The mission of TNC is the stewardship of nearly 400 wooded acres for the purposes of conservation, education and recreation.
TNC is the largest privately-run nature center in Bergen County, and protects the biggest undeveloped open space in Tenafly. Its seven miles of trails, forest, pond, streams and wetlands serve as an oasis, enabling visitors to connect with nature in the country’s most densely populated state.
A sanctuary for visitors, Tenafly Nature Center is an island of green, where bonds with nature can be initiated and renewed. The strategic location provides a welcome stopover for over 100 bird species during their seasonal migrations. Whether one has an hour or a day, TNC offers a peaceful respite from the rush of daily life.
