THE TEANECK CREEK CONSERVANCY

The Teaneck Creek Conservancy is a member-supported, non-profit organization dedicated to the reclamation and protection of Bergen County’s Teaneck Creek Park. Since 2001, the TCC has been working hard to transform once-neglected parkland into a place of natural beauty.

In a unique collaboration between public and non-profit partners, and hundreds of hours of sweat equity, these 46 acres have been transformed into a small urban paradise complete with almost two miles of groomed trails, an Outdoor Classroom for learning, and even a Peace Labyrinth for quiet reflection.
