Teatown Lake Reservation in Westchester

I had a lovely time exploring and hiking about Teatown Lake Reservation in Ossining. I walked about their education center and looked at the local animals including turtles, snakes, and walking sticks.

I viewed wildflower island completely blanketed with wildflowers.

I hiked around the lake and couldn’t count all the water lilies if I tried. So many beautiful wildflowers about!

What a beautiful and well maintained preserve.
