A propos de ce titre
Aplace apart . . . Teatown Lake Reservation is the largest not-for-profit nature preserve and education center in Westchester County. Forty miles north of New York City, it extends over seven hundred fifty rural acres within the boundaries of four towns: Cortlandt, Yorktown, New Castle, and Ossining. Open to the public year-round without charge, Teatown welcomes all and offers much: nature programs, exhibits, summer camp, annual festivals, environmental conferences, fourteen miles of hiking trails through meadows and forests, and a thirty-three-acre lake with a wildflower-laden island. It is a peaceful place apart.
Teatown Lake Reservation, an informal history of a unique community resource, traces the development of the Teatown area from its geologic origins through Native American habitation and early European settlement up to the present time. It explains how the reservation came to be, why it is named Teatown, and how it has developed into a landmark in the fields of environmental education and nature preservation.About the Author:
Ossining resident Lincoln Diamant was the first president of Teatown Lake Reservation. He is the author of eight books, an elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an authority on the forfeiture of Royalist land titles in the lower Hudson Valley. Working closely with the Teatown History Committee, he has assembled this tribute, combining text with essays by former and present staff members. Teatown Lake Reservation includes images and maps from an extensive archive, original illustrations, and a gallery of award-winning photographs.
