Our Response to COVID-19

As always, the wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our primary concern. In the current circumstances, we must think of our communities, too – locally, nationally, internationally. We’re all connected. To date, there are very few confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our area. We want to do our part to stop any further spread. In accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the Roger Tory Peterson Institute is closed to the public until further notice. Please see Events for which programs have been cancelled or postponed.

In accordance with the executive order of Governor Cuomo, all staff are working from home. In the meantime, our 27 acres and trails are open. Getting outside, taking a walk, listening for the return of spring birds and searching for spring wildflowers – these are good, safe ways to help all of us manage the challenge of these days.

Be safe. Be well. Please check back with us – we hope to have our doors reopened for you soon.
