Located in Jamestown, NY, birthplace of Roger Tory Peterson, the Institute preserves the legacy of the most preeminent naturalist of the 20th century and creator of the legendary Peterson Field Guides. That legacy includes Peterson’s collection of art, writing and photography, a national leadership program in teacher education, and exhibitions of nature art, all within in a spectacular building designed by Robert A. M. Stern.
RTPI’s mission reflects RTP’s belief that people who develop awareness and passion for the natural world will become committed to its preservation. Please visit www.rtpi.org for more information on our current programs and upcoming events.
